The Blackhawks opened as early favorites to win the 2016 Stanley Cup just one week after capturing their third title in six years, and oddsmakers haven't wavered on that.
In fact, Bovada slightly increased the Blackhawks' chances to 13/2 odds after initially pegging them at 7/1 in June.
Despite a flurry of offseason moves and the uncertainty regarding Patrick Kane, oddsmakers still believe the Blackhawks have as good a chance as any to repeat, which hasn't happened since the 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings.
