NHL Prince of Wales TrophyUpdated 9/29/13: There are now 16 teams in the NHL’s Eastern Confernce, as the Detroit Red Wings and the Columbus Blue Jackets have moved into the conference, while the Winnipeg Jets have left. That makes it a heck of a lot harder to beat the odds to win the Eastern Conference this year, but we’re going to give it our best anyway!

Obviously, the Pittsburgh Penguins are the best team in the East. The best team doesn’t always win, and that’s why +250 isn’t the best price that you’ll probably find over the course of the season on the Pens. The talent is there for this club to be out of this world, but it’s all going to boil back down to the defense and the goaltending. Can Marc-Andre Fleury really keep the back of his net clean? He had that problem the whole postseason long last year, and we have to expect that he is going to run into a similar issue in 2013-14.

Sports Betting HockeyIn fact, it’s not the Red Wings (+800) or the Boston Bruins (+500) that we really have our eyes on in the East. We think that there are a lot of up and coming teams that with a few tweaks could really be players in the postseason. The Montreal Canadiens have gotten tougher and are clearly worth the +950 price attached to them, and the team right behind them, the New York Rangers could be the surprising team this year in the Metropolitan Division and might be worth the hockey odds at +1000. The Toronto Maple Leafs at +1100 are a very good goalie away from being dominating, while the New York Islanders might be worth a flier this year at +1450 as well. Remember where we started talking about Columbus? The Blue Jackets at +2500 might be a nice price too, as we think that this team can get into the playoffs this year, which would make this a great price on the odds to win the Eastern Conference in the NHL.
