The Blackhawks have been getting the most attention in terms of Stanley Cup futures with the Kings right behind them. The Bruins and Blues were also both getting plenty of public love until they were defeated by the Canadiens and Blackhawks respectively. Boston had been the most consistent team all year and earned the respect from oddsmakers by being deemed the clear-cut +350 favorite heading into the playoffs.

The most interesting future odds move has been the Kings. Down 3-0 to the Sharks, LA was +10,000 to win the Stanley Cup. Now with a 3-2 series lead over Chicago in the Western Conference Finals, LA is now the -265 favorite at Bovada to win it all:
