Free Agency Signings Could Affect NHL Futures

NHL FuturesSportsbook users who bet on NHL futures know just how important the free agency period can be for an NHL club. It’s not uncommon for a mediocre team to snag the right pieces during free agency and then make a legitimate run at the Stanley Cup. It’s important for franchises to be able to have progressive off seasons, and a big part of that is the ability to asses needs and fill them during free agency. Equally as important is the ability to measure and grade a team’s offseason moves. Doing so will result in better and more insightful wagers for your bet on NHL games. With that in mind let’s take a look at all the signings during this year’s free agency.

: Florida Panthers  2016-17 Betting SeasonThe Florida Panthers’ NHL betting odds to win the 2016-2017 Stanley Cup currently stand at +1825, giving them about the best 10th odds to go all the way. And while the Tampa Bay Lightning have better odds (+1325), the Panthers are not going to let their neighbors get the upper hand just like that. The Panthers have redesigned their logo and uniform set, and while outwardly appearances do not win championships, that is just an indication of things to come. Florida won the Atlantic Division last season with a franchise record of 103 points. However, there is always room for improvement, especially if fans who bet on hockey consider that lost to the New York Islanders 4-2 in the first round of the playoffs.

Stanley Cup Final Game 1 Preview: Sharks vs Penguins

Game one of the Stanley Cup Finals begins!As the series to determine the new Stanley Cup Champions begin, online betting fans have already began to place their wagers on the series and on game 1. For the moment the Pittsburg Penguins have gathered the majority of action at first. This isn’t really any type of surprise, after all they are rightfully considered the favorites, after outlasting the Lightning in 7 grueling games and surviving tough series prior to that against the Rangers and Capitals. Yet the Penguins are yet to face, perhaps, their toughest opponent, and they come in the form of some scary dudes with big beards. The Sharks are not going to enter the  Stanley Cup Finals  just “happy to be there”, they want to win… badly.
