Dallas Stars Decent Favorites to Win the Stanley Cup
Next on the list is the Dallas Stars, Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin have been fantastic for Dallas, with a combined 138 points. The Stars have from start to finish been one of the best teams in all of the National Hockey League.

Other Odds to Win it all in the NHL
Next on the list is the Los Angeles Kings. The Kings are led by great goaltending and tough defenders. The Los Angeles Kings are listed at +800 to win the Stanley Cup. There are three more teams on the list to win the 2016 Stanley Cup. The Florida Panthers, the St. Louis Blues and the Anaheim Ducks are all three listed at +1200.
Florida is leading the Atlantic Division. The Panthers are coming off a road loss in Minnesota, but overall have been outstanding. No one offensive player stands alone for the Panthers, as they are a team offensive unit. The St. Louis Blues are also +1200, but stand no chance if they cannot figure out a way to score more consistently. The Blues have also been riddled by injuries all season long. Last on the list of three is the Anaheim Ducks. Following a slow start, the Ducks have moved within reach of winning the Pacific Division. The Ducks are a team that is scary, because of how well they are playing.
Other notable teams include: Tampa Bay Lightning +1400, New York Rangers +1400, San Jose Sharks +1800 Boston Bruins +1800, Detroit Red Wings +2000, New York Islanders +2000.
