2014-15 NHL Stanley Cup Futures

Even before the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons, oddsmakers had already begun looking forward to next year. Sportsbook.com became the first sportsbook to post NHL Stanley Cup Futures for the 2014-15 season and now a number of prominent sportsbooks have posted their 2015 NHL futures.

Posting odds this early means that these futures will be subject to significant fluctuation throughout the off-season, as free agency could seriously impact many of these top teams. Forward Jarome Iginla moved to the Colorado Avalanche, goalie Ryan Miller signed with Vancouver, forward Marian Gaborik re-signed with the Kings, defenseman Matt Niskanen went to the Capitals, forward Thomas Vanek went home to the Minnesota Wild, and C Paul Stastny moved to the St. Louis Blues among others. There are still plenty of key players who have yet to sign so be sure to check back for any updates.

The NHL has just released the full schedule for the 2014-15 season and the table below compares the opening and current odds at both Sportsbook.com and Bovada.
