According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Pittsburgh Penguins open as the favorite, as they have 5/2 odds to win. Other short odds to win are the Boston Bruins (9/2) and the Detroit Red Wings (5/1).

The Penguins look like they will have the most talent coming into 2014, but they fell in the conference finals this year to the Bruins in rather lopsided fashion. Pittsburgh did have the top record in the East this year.

Boston is coming off a loss in the Stanley Cup Final, in six games. The Bruins were the fourth seed entering the playoffs this year, but they have plenty of talent to work with.

Detroit is making the jump to the East next season. The Red Wings actually had a 3-1 lead on Chicago in the Western semifinals, but couldn’t finish the job. Detroit was the seventh seed in the West this year, but they have a lot of young talent and locked up Pavel Datsyuk to a contract extension.
