Now that the 2017-18 season and Stanley Cup playoffs are officially in the books, it's time to move forward. 

Even though the 2018 NHL Draft is only June 22nd and free agency isn't until July 1st, it's still time to take an early gamble on the 2018-19 Stanley Cup Champions. 

Bovado released their first set off odds for the 2018-19 Stanley Cup Champs and the Boston Bruins were given some respect. 

After putting together a beautiful run during the 2017-18 season, the Bruins sit tied for second place with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Vegas Golden Knights and Winnipeg Jets at 10/1. 

The Tampa Bay Lightning top the list with 9/1 odds. 

Sitting in the basement are the Ottawa Senators at 100/1 with the Arizona Coyotes and Vancouver Canucks not too far behind at 80/1.
