If you want to take some longshots and hope to get lucky like the Las Vegas Golden Knights did this past NHL season then here are some opportunities to make a small fortune from betting on Hockey Futures during the off season.
New York Rangers +8000
The biggest long shot this offseason is the New York Rangers who are priced at +8000 and finished with only 77 points last NHL season. They got rid of a lot of players to free up some cap space and have $29 million and change to sign new players and with GM Jeff Gorton ready to spend who knows who will arrive in the Big Apple.
Anaheim Ducks +2500

With some improvement needed to get past round 1 of the playoffs next year don’t run over these Ducks quite yet. Ryan Getzlaf and Cam Fowler hope to stay off the injuries and to come back in and make it to the playoffs and make anybody who took them at +2500 proud that they did.
St. Louis Blues + 4000
Last year finish: 94 points; missed the playoff
With a finish of 94 points and a missed playoff birth the Blues aren’t one we would advise betting on this off season. They traded their best defensemen and are left with soon to be determined great players or bust in Vladmir Tarasenko and Brayden Schenn.
Montreal Canadiens +6000
With 71 points last season and a far cry from making the playoffs it just proves passion doesn’t equal playoffs. In their defense injuries to Shea Weber and Carey Price hurt them and if Price can be healthy they should slide into the last slot of the 2019 NHL Playoffs.
New Jersey Devils +4000
Always fun to watch the Devils play but never to wager on them. They made it to the playoffs but thats about all they did and flunked out right after. Unless you’re a Devils fan you stay away from this bet.
The other wagers you can make with all of these teams currently priced at +1000 are for the Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Winnipeg Jets, Pittsburgh Penguins, Nashville Predators, Las Vegas Golden Knights, and the Tampa Bay Lightning. If you are an expert in hedging then you may see some great opportunities here to pick up tickets for a couple of these teams and hedge if they can get past the second round in the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
