    The Favourites

    After having won the Stanley Cup at the end of the 2015/16 hockey season, the Pittsburgh Penguins are up there as one of the favourites to win the heralded competition once again. This is only the second time time in over 20 years that the Pittsburgh Penguins have won the Stanley but because they retained it last season, they are odds on favourite sto do so again. A pick of some of the other favourites pipped for the title this season to win the Stanley Cup include the likes of Tampa Bay Lightning and The Florida Panthers.


    The Outsiders

    The Washington Capitals once again are said to be a team that could surprise the top squads in the NHL this season. The Capitals' season this year ended the same way it did last year with a defeat in round 2 of the Play-Offs. Last year, they were once again pitted as an outsider that could possibly cause an upset and this year nothing has changed, they are once again the outsiders. 2 years ago they were defeated at the hands of the New York Rangers and this season just gone they were defeated by the eventual winners Pittsburgh Penguins. Washington have always been there or thereabouts and it will be no different this time around. Tampa Bay Lightning are also a potentially dangerous side who some reckon will come to light this season. The bookies have them at good odds to surprise everyone and dominate the competition this year. 

    Strugglers

    The Toronto Maple Leafs are and have been struggling the last few years. In the 2011/12 season they finished 4th but failed to qualify for the Play-Offs. In the 2012/13 season they finished 3rd and were beaten in the quarter finals. Since then they been going down hill. They haven't qualified for the Play-Offs since then. They finished 8th last season, 7th the season before that and 3 years ago they finished 6th, they've been performing gradually worse each year.In addition to the Oilers, the Philadelphia Flyers were never destined for great things this campaign but they have performed worse than expected ina nulber of areas already. Claude Giroux and Jalub Voracek have not worked as well  as this time last season together up front.
