Even after the departures of Brandon Saad, Johnny Oduya, Patrick Sharp, Brad Richards, and Antoine Vermette -- not to mention the serious allegations against Patrick Kane, and the fact there hasn’t been a repeat champion during the salary-cap era -- the Chicago Blackhawks remain the favorites to win the 2016 Stanley Cup at online bookmaker Bovada.

In fact, the Blackhawks’ odds have slightly improved -- from 7/1 to 13/2 -- since hoisting the Cup in June.

Other teams that have seen their odds improve are the Kings (14/1 to 10/1), Flames (40/1 to 28/1), and, most dramatically, Stars (66/1 to 28/1).

The Canucks (40/1 to 66/1), Leafs (66/1 to 100/1), and Coyotes (100/1 to 150/1) are among the teams that have seen their odds go the other way.
