The conferences have been switched around and division names have been changed (some say for the worse!). You can see the results below, all 3 Canadian teams in the Eastern Conference are in the Atlantic Division, the Winnipeg Jets have been moved to the Western Conference’s Central Division, while the Pacific Division holds the rest of the Canadian teams in the West. The top three teams in each division will advance to playoffs and there will be two wildcards in each conference for the teams with the best regular season.

Toronto 15/1

The odds makers have the Toronto Maple Leafs at 15-to-1 odds to win the Stanley Cup in 2014, which are the shortest odds of any Canadian team. Last year, Toronto was so close to making the second round of the playoffs but blew a four goal lead to the Boston Bruins. The loss left the city heartbroken, but what made matters worse is that the Boston Bruins went on to the Stanley Cup final which gave Maple Leaf fans a glimpse of “what could have been”.

Vancouver Canucks 16/1

The Vancouver Canucks are listed at 16-to-1 odds which makes them the team that the oddsmakers favour most to come out of the Western Conference. The Canucks have been considered among the top favourites to win the Stanley Cup in recent years so it comes as somewhat of a surprise to see the Leafs favoured above them in the odds. But this Canucks squad is definitely different from years past and they are no longer in a weak division.

Montreal 18/1

The Montreal Canadiens went out and made a big offseason acquisition when they signed Quebec native Daniel Briere. The signing of Briere was caused somewhat of a buzz around this Montreal team because they have a legitimate superstar goal scorer to go along with defenseman PK Subban and Goalie Carey Price. This triple threat is more than capable of leading the Canadiens to the Stanley Cup final.

Ottawa 22/1

The departure of Daniel Alfredsson in the offseason was the hot topic for the Ottawa Senators, but long time Senator Jason Spezza will try and lead the team to a Stanley Cup victory that he has been missing from his career. Ottawa will also get to see a lot of Alfredsson because his new team, the Detroit Red Wings, have been moved to the Eastern Conference.

Edmonton 25/1

The Edmonton Oilers have a decent hockey team going into the 2013-14 season with a lot of youthful talent like Ryan Nugent Hopkins and Ryan Eberle. But the Oilers are in a very tough division along with Vancouver so it will be quite surprising if more than one of the Canadian teams in the Pacific Division make the post season.

Winnipeg 66/1

Winnipeg made the move to the Western Conference and are thrown in with the dogs immediately because the Central division is stacked, and they will most likely be battling for a wildcard spot. Powerhouse teams like Chicago and St Louis will probably occupy top spots in the standings.

Calgary 250/1

This is definitely a rebuilding year for the Calgary Flames and in a stacked Western Conference Calgary are a longshot to make the playoffs and the odds of them winning the Cup are 250-to-1 as a result.
