FHN Today: Florida Panthers remain a popular bet

Published

Florida panthers

The Florida Panthers made a lot of changes during the offseason and, at least according to one sportsbook, they have been for the better.

On the DraftKings site, the Colorado Avalanche are the heavy betting favorite to repeat at +380.

The Panthers and Maple Leafs are tied for second at +850.

As far as winning the Eastern Conference goes, the two are at +450 — but the Leafs are +180 to win the Atlantic with Florida at +200.

At FanDuel, the Avs are favorites to win the Cup (+450) followed by Carolina and Toronto (+1000) with Florida at +1100.

PANTHERLAND

We published our first Atlantic Division Power Rankings of the 2022-23 season and, like the betting sites, we think the Panthers look pretty good as well.

Aaron Ekblad did not make the top five when the NHL Network ranked the league’s defensemen. But should he have been?

— The Panthers have a fairly easy looking schedule in October which should work out well for a team which will be working through some things.

Rudolfs Balcers is going to find himself in a nice spot with the Panthers if everything goes as he hopes.

NATIONAL HOCKEY NOW

Brian Burke talks to Pittsburgh Hockey Now about why he thinks the Pittsburgh Penguins are better than they were last season. Burke makes some pretty solid points here.

— The Detroit Red Wings should be a lot better this season. Who are their top five players?

— Looks like the San Jose Sharks will be getting a new look in 2023.

— With eight players going into their final contractual seasons, the Vancouver Canucks could be busy on the trade market.

— Speaking of the Pittsburgh Penguins, it is time to pay goalie Tristan Jarry.

— Look at the new mask that Washington Capitals goalie Darcy Kuemper will be rocking.

— Appears the Reverse Retro for the Vegas Golden Knights has leaked.
