The Canucks were the first seed in the Western Conference in 2011, sporting a 54-19 record and reaching the Stanley Cup Finals, where they lost in seven games to the Boston Bruins. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog, the Canucks have opened as 5/1 favorites to win the 2012 Stanley Cup.

The Bruins, meanwhile, have the next best odds to win at 8/1. Boston finished with a 46-25 record in 2011, reached the Finals and then beat the Canucks in Vancouver in Game 7 thanks to goaltender Tim Thomas. It was the Bruins’ first Stanley Cup win since 1972.

The next best odds to win the 2012 Stanley Cup belong to the Washington Capitals, who are 17/2. The Caps finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference last year at 48-23, but were shocked by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the second round of the playoffs. The Lightning, who are 12/1 to win the cup in 2012, swept the Capitals in four games before losing to the Bruins in the semi-finals.

The Philadelphia Flyers (9/1), Pittsburgh Penguins (9/1), San Jose Sharks (9/1), Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Blackhawks (15/1) and Los Angeles Kings round out the top 10 for odds to win the Stanley Cup in 2012. For a complete list of opening odds for all of the NHL, see below.
