Here’s a look at 10 teams worth talking about when putting money down on NHL futures.
Let’s break it down.
2022 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Colorado Avalanche +450
Colorado remains a strong team, with some incredibly high end talent signed to affordable deals, their time to win is now and they know it. Last season saw the Avs fall in the second round to the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 7, but Colorado is still the betting favourite to take home the 2022 Stanley Cup.
2022 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Tampa Bay Lightning +550
It’s not easy to win the Stanley Cup, much less to do it in back to back years like Tampa has. The Bolts have secured their spot in history as a truly dominant franchise, but how likely is it that they see a third straight championship? Not very likely in my opinion.
The core is still together, but the team has lost significant depth players who were essential personnel in their runs to the cup.
2022 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Vegas Golden Knights +700
By all accounts, Vegas should be a very strong team for yet another season. The face of the franchise in Marc Andre Fleury might be gone, but their goaltending should still be a strength if Robin Lehner is able to keep performing. The big question mark for Vegas is still their strength down the middle.
Quality centres are hard to come by, and they might need to make a move to acquire one before the play-offs. With that said, the Golden Knights should be a lock for the play-offs, especially given how weak the Pacific division is.
2022 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Toronto Maple Leafs +1100
The Toronto Maple Leafs went big last season, and it didn’t pay off. They’re still a talented young team, but that talent hasn’t been able to drag them out of the first round, never mind to a cup. This season, they will have to find a way to replace Zach Hyman, who signed in Edmonton this summer.
They should still be a good team. Just don’t hold your breath once the play-offs come around.
2022 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Boston Bruins +1400
The Boston Bruins are an interesting team. Their core has been aging for a while now, but it seems that Patrice Bergeron has found the secret to immortality, because the team continues to be extremely good, despite the best efforts of father time. With that said, the appropriately nicknamed “perfection line” is only once piece of the Bruins puzzle.
Tuuka Rask, the Bruins 34 year old star goaltender remains unsigned, and while he has expressed his desire to stay in Boston, he will reportedly miss time due to surgery.
2022 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Carolina Hurricanes +1500
The Canes were busy this offseason with the offer sheet of Jesperi Kotkaniemi from Montreal. This has only added to their surplus of young, skilled forwards. However their weaknesses will most likely be at the other end of the ice. Star defenseman Dougie Hamilton is no longer a Cane, and the controversial Tony DeAngelo will most likely slide into the line up.
Despite the apparent step back on the blue line, this team could still make big waves come play-off time.
2022 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: New York Islanders +1900
The islanders are the odd team out on this futures list. They have had substantially more success than several teams with better odds. Last season they lost to Tampa by a single goal in game 7, and they have consistently made it far into the play-offs in previous years.
This off season, they have signed some play-off veterans, so I would expect them to make noise once again in 2022.
2022 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Florida Panthers + 2000
Florida has finally taken the step forward their fans have been waiting for, but competition is going to be steep now that the divisions are realigned. They will have to compete with Boston, Tampa, and Toronto if they want to secure a divisional play-off spot, but this team could still make some noise as a wild card.
2022 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Dallas Stars +2200
Last season the Dallas Stars were on the outside of the play-offs looking in, but they should have a rebound year. In the 2020 bubble play-offs they made it all the way to the cup final, but a difficult 2021 season that included covid outbreaks, and condensed schedules contributed to the team underperforming.
Expect the stars to be better now that they’re back in the Central.
2022 Stanley Cup Futures Betting Odds: Winnipeg Jets +4000
The Winnipeg Jets had a strong summer and they should be much better than last season. Nate Schmidt and Brendan Dillon were the two biggest acquisitions, and the Jets’ blue line has not looked this good since the 2018 season where they made it to the Western Conference Final.
The biggest question for the Jets is their second line centre, Pierre-Luc Dubois. He did not live up to expectations last season, but if he bounces back the Jets could be a very strong team.
