Pittsburgh Penguins favored to win 2017 Stanley Cup

Can the Pittsburgh Penguins win back-to-back Stanley Cups? 

Gambling odds-maker Bovada believes the Penguins are the favorite to win it all next year, one day after Pittsburgh captured their fourth Cup in franchise history.

It lists the Penguins as 8/1 to win next year’s Cup, with the Chicago Blackhawks and Washington Capitals tied at 10/1 right behind Pittsburgh. The next team is the St. Louis Blues at 12/1.

The San Jose Sharks, who lost in six games in the Cup Final, are listed at 14/1 along with the Los Angeles Kings and Tampa Bay Lightning.

This is interesting, considering the fact the Sharks bounced the Blues in six games in the Western Conference Final. 

San Jose has all their core players under contract while the Blues may lose key veterans David Backes and Troy Brouwer to free agency.

Which team with lower odds will jump up and surprise the hockey world next season?
