2014 NHL Western Conference Odds
(TheSpread) – The NHL Western Conference should be highly competitive in 2014. Here is a look at the odds to win next year’s title.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Chicago Blackhawks are the favorite to win the west next season, as they have 5/2 odds to win. Other short odds to win are the St. Louis Blues (7/2) and the Vancouver Canucks (5/1).
Chicago won the Stanley Cup this season, beating the Bruins in six games. Chicago is loaded with talent, but the Blackhawks may lose some of their key role players in the offseason. Chicago had the top record in the NHL this past season.
St. Louis was the fourth seed in this year’s playoffs, but lost to the Kings in six games in the first round. The Blues have a lot of young, promising talent, and should be able to contend for years to come.
The Canucks were the third seed in the West this year, but lost in a sweep to the Sharks in the first round of the playoffs. Vancouver has made a coaching change in hopes to spark the team for next season.
