Now that the 2017-18 season and Stanley Cup playoffs are officially in the books, it's time to move forward.
Even though the 2018 NHL Draft is only June 22nd and free agency isn't until July 1st, it's still time to take an early gamble on the 2018-19 Stanley Cup Champions.
Bovado released their first set off odds for the 2018-19 Stanley Cup Champs and the Philadelphia Flyers weren't given much respect. .
With the Flyers holding a ton of salary cap space to sign free agents and two first round picks, Bovado doesn't really believe any changes the Flyers make will be significant ones.
The Flyers were given 28/1 odds to win the 2018-19 Stanley Cup, tying them with the dysfunctional Calgary Flames who also received 28/1 odds.
The Tampa Bay Lightning top the list with 9/1 odds.
Sitting in the basement are the Ottawa Senators at 100/1 with the Arizona Coyotes and Vancouver Canucks not too far behind at 80/1.
