A day after the Pittsburgh Penguins captured the 2016 Stanley Cup, the bookmakers at Bodog have already listed the odds of winning next year.

Sidney Crosby and the boys are the favourites to repeat as Cup champs at 8-1, followed closely by 2015 Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks and the Presidents’ Trophy winning Washington Capitals, each at 10-1. The San Jose Sharks, who lost in the Final, have been given a 14-1 chance of getting the job done next year.

The Montreal Canadiens represent Canada’s best chance of winning the Cup, at 20-1. Despite missing the playoffs last season, the bookmakers appear to be relatively optimistic about the Habs’ chances. No other non-playoff team had better odds than Montreal, who are ranked higher than playoff teams from Florida and Philadelphia.

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres have the worst odds of winning the Stanley Cup, at 66-1.

Here’s the full list:

  • Pittsburgh Penguins: 8-1
