Habs Top 2016 Stanley Cup Odds for Canada

With Canada’s collective Stanley Cup drought continuing this past season the Montreal Canadiens have opened with the country’s top odds to win the Stanley Cup at online sportsbook Bodog for the 2015/16 NHL campaign.

The Canadiens, who fell in the second round of this past season’s playoffs to the Tampa Bay Lightning, are the top team from Canada on the opening 2016 Stanley Cup odds at Bodog at 14/1. The Winnipeg Jets are then at 25/1 on those NHL futures after they were swept by the Anaheim Ducks in the first round of the playoffs this past year.

The Edmonton Oilers are coming off yet another season where they missed the playoffs altogether, but with the top overall draft pick and the right to select highly-touted forward prospect Connor McDavid in hand they are in the middle of the pack at 33/1 odds to win the 2016 Stanley Cup.

Edmonton’s provincial rival, the Calgary Flames, sit at 40/1 on the opening 2016 Stanley Cup odds at the online sportsbook along with the Vancouver Canucks. The Flames and the Canucks met in the first round of this past season’s playoffs, with Calgary winning in six games before falling in five games to the Ducks in the second round.

The Ottawa Senators, who surged in the second half of last season to make the playoffs but fell in six games in the first round to the Canadiens, are at 50/1 on the 2016 Stanley Cup odds. The Toronto Maple Leafs then round out the Canadian clubs on those NHL futures at 66/1 odds, with Mike Babcock brought in to be their head coach for next season.

The defending-champion Chicago Blackhawks opened as the 7/1 favorites at Bodog on their 2016 Stanley Cup odds board, with the New York Rangers at 8/1, the Anaheim Ducks at 10/1, and the St. Louis Blues and the Tampa Bay Lightning both at 12/1. The Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild, and Pittsburgh Penguins all join the Canadiens at 14/1 odds.
