The Los Angeles Kings are in Day Three of celebrating their 2014 Stanley Cup championship. Meanwhile, 29 other NHL teams are already looking toward next year, hoping the 2014-15 campaign can be the year they win the final game of the season.

Also looking toward next year: the oddsmakers, who don't have the current champs as their favorites for the 2015 Cup.

Here are the odds for the Cup winner next season, via Bovada:

Odds to win the 2015 Stanley Cup

Chicago Blackhawks 15/2

Boston Bruins 8/1

Pittsburgh Penguins 9/1

Los Angeles Kings 10/1

St. Louis Blues 10/1

Anaheim Ducks 14/1

San Jose Sharks 14/1

Colorado Avalanche 18/1

Minnesota Wild 18/1

New York Rangers 18/1

Detroit Red Wings 22/1

Montreal Canadiens 25/1

Tampa Bay Lightning 25/1

Vancouver Canucks 25/1

Philadelphia Flyers 28/1

Dallas Stars 33/1

Toronto Maple Leafs 33/1

Washington Capitals 33/1

Columbus Blue Jackets 40/1 

New Jersey Devils 40/1

Carolina Hurricanes 50/1

Edmonton Oilers 50/1

Ottawa Senators 50/1

Phoenix Coyotes 50/1

Winnipeg Jets 50/1

Calgary Flames 66/1

Florida Panthers 66/1

Nashville Predators 66/1

New York Islanders 66/1

Buffalo Sabres 75/1

The Kings at 10/1 could be a nice bet if you think repeats are possible; as could the Rangers at 18/1 if you believe they can weave their way through the Eastern Conference again. 

And sorry, Bovada, we're not going to get suckered into betting on the Sharks (14/1) again. We've finally learned our lesson (maybe).
