The Chicago Blackhawks lost Patrick Kane for the rest of the regular season and he was possibly on his way to the scoring lead and the MVP trophy.

The betting odds are always fun to look at certain points of the season and after the trade deadline with the finish line distant but in sight it’s always fun to see what Las Vegas has to say about the NHL.

Although losing Kane, the Betters must have liked the pick ups of Antoine Vermette, Kimmo Timonen, and Andrew Dejardins, and when looking at the odds for all the teams its still a Western Conference Stanley Cup to win or lose.

It’s pretty interesting the difference between the opening night odds and today’s current odds.

Here is the odds on opening night in October.

Chicago Blackhawks 6/1
Los Angeles Kings 8/1
Anaheim Ducks 9/1
Boston Bruins 11/1
Montreal Canadiens 12/1
Pittsburgh Penguins 12/1

The Blackhawks have been at the top all season long while Nashville has skyrocketed from 50/1 to near the top at 9/1.  And if for some reason you put some money on the Florida Panthers at the beginning of the season at 500/1 what an incredible upset that would be in the spring.

The best value has to be the Kings because they are the Kings and they never go away, but it’s interesting that the Blackhawks are still at the top of the betting line even with the loss of Patrick Kane.

Even Las Vegas knows that the Chicago Blackhawks are All-in this season as they sit a top of the betting line.

What do you  think of the betting odds? Joke or something fun to look at?
