2017 Stanley Cup Outright Lines And Prediction
In the wake of the 2016/17 NHL Season, the Pittsburgh Penguins are favored to win a back-to-back Stanley Cup, of course, but some serious contenders as the Chicago Blackhawks and Washington Capitals seem to have what it take to give the champs a hard time in this battle for the NHL supremacy.

Notice how low The Sharks are ranked despite being a Stanley Cup finalist last year. Is that fair?
It is. They will have to fight VERY hard to win the West again, and then likely meet the Pens again in the finals. Of course, it’s possible. But if they’re going to make it happen, every single player has to play better than they did last year. It feel like they’re ready to break through, and take it to the next level after last season. But, Ducks, Blues, Stars, Lightning, Hawks, Caps, and Penguins all have better lines and outright odds. So if you feel they are poised to win it all, you’re going to be very happy in June.

The Pittsburgh Penguins March On. Or not.
Back in 2010, the Stanley champion Pens looked stacked and poised to build a long run of Cups. But they fell short, like all have for almost 20 years. No team has gone back-to-back since the Red Wings in 1997-1998.
The NHL knows balance is good for business. So it has rules to slow the building of dynasties. It’s never been harder to win consecutive Stanley Cups. There’s lots of reasons, like with depth of the league, the NHL draft, and the salary cap. It's all uphill and they have a bullseye on their chests. But they are still the best bet.

Will The World Cup of Hockey Ruin The Stanley Cup?
It certainly could, but probably won’t. This is a popular fear now that pros from the NHL, NBA and PGA are allowed to participate in international games like the olympics, or the World Cup of Hockey in this case.
The puck drops in Toronto, which in the top 150 players in the world throw down a month before the NHL season starts? Accelerated training camp, or too much of a drain on the NHL’s top shelf talent? There’s critics on both sides. Nobody has flat out said that playing internationally has hurt their season. But it does leave them with less in the tank at the end of the year. On the other side, they’re in midseason form in October.
