Odds to Win the 2012 Stanley Cup

My friend Jimmy Shapiro sent me the latest odds to win the Stanley Cup yesterday. The odds are courtesy of the good people at Bovada. Here’s the skinny:

Pittsburgh Penguins 4/1
New York Rangers 11/2
Vancouver Canucks 11/2
St. Louis Blues 15/2
Boston Bruins 8/1
Detroit Red Wings 12/1
Nashville Predators 14/1
Philadelphia Flyers 14/1
Chicago Blackhawks 16/1
San Jose Sharks 18/1
Los Angeles Kings 20/1
New Jersey Devils 25/1
Washington Capitals 30/1
Florida Panthers 35/1
Ottawa Senators 40/1
Phoenix Coyotes 40/1

The hometown Caps going off at 30-1 seems about right, though I like them to take down Boston, the defending champs, in Round One. In terms of value, I like Nashville, Philadelphia and Chicago. Odds on winning the Eastern and Western Conference are after the jump.
