Minty Bets gives her best futures for the upcoming NHL season.
MINTY BETS: It's the NHL season. I'm Minty Bets, and here are some of my favorite futures. First up, I like the Edmonton Oilers to win the Pacific Division. Edmonton possesses two of the best players in the league with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. They're ranked top 10 in scoring and defense, and their veteran goaltender Mike Smith had a great year.
For the Eastern Conference winner, I like the Boston Bruins. Boston had a pretty busy offseason, revamping the depth of their roster while still keeping their star players. This top line can compete with anyone, and the Bruins are one of the best defensive teams in the league.
For the Stanley Cup, I like the Colorado Avalanche to win it all. Colorado is a really dominant team during the regular season and recorded the most points in the NHL. Although the Golden Knights recorded more wins than them, Colorado is still a very consistent team with highly ranked players.
And lastly, let's go with the Seattle Kraken as my long-shot Stanley Cup winner. I'm inspired by how far the Vegas Golden Knights went in their first year as an expansion team, and I see the same thing with the Seattle Kraken. This team possesses quality goaltenders and defensemen, and they're in the Pacific Division, which helps their chances a lot.
