The end of the National Hockey League 2023-24 season is finally here, with the Florida Panthers just winning their first-ever Stanley Cup, beating the Edmonton Oilers in Game 7, but can they make it two in a row, and win another cup in 2025?

For the first time in their 30-year existence, the Panthers captured Lord Stanley and now will look to make it back-to-back titles.

But are they the favorite to do that?

According to most New Jersey betting sites, the Stanley Cup champion Panthers are +900, making them one of the favorites to win another cup.

While the Panthers are the favorite, they are not alone at the top as per

The Dallas Stars, who won 52 games this season are also +900. Western Conference Champion and Stanley Cup runner-up, Edmonton with Connor McDavid, is next at +950. McDavid who just won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the 2024 postseason, is also the favorite to win the Hart Trophy (regular season MVP) next year at +175.

The Eastern Conference runner-up New York Rangers with the very dangerous Artemi Panarin (+4000 to win MVP) are tied with Colorado, who features Nathan MacKinnon (+700 to win MVP) and Carolina at + 1200.

So who are some teams that offer some good value?

The New Jersey Devils are led by Jack Hughes, who is +1100 to win league MVP next season and are an interesting play at +1300 to win the cup.

The Vegas Golden Knights have been a consistent winner since entering the league for the 2019-20 season, they come in at +1600.

The Toronto Maple Leafs haven't won a Cup since 1967, but have a great core with Auston Matthews, who is +800 to win the MVP, and William Nylander are +1600.

Boston, led by David Pastrnak, who is +2000 to win MVP, and finished just one point behind the Panthers this season and are +2000 to win the Cup next season.

Vancouver was the top team in the Pacific Division this season with J.T. Miller and Quinn Huges and are +2000.

How about a long shot? Try Philadelphia at +5000, who finished 38-33-11, five points out of an Eastern Conference playoff spot. The Flyers just added Russian superstar Matvei Michkov, who was the 7th overall pick in the 2023 draft and could be a sleeper team with good value for next season.

The NHL season will be back before we know it with preseason games starting in late September and opening night on Oct. 4.
