2020 Stanley Cup odds released – and the Blues aren't favored to repeat

The St. Louis Blues made history on Wednesday night when they defeated the Boston Bruins to win the franchise's first-ever Stanley Cup championship

The next few weeks and months will be joyous for the Blues and their fans as they plan parades and other celebrations with Lord Stanley – but for the other 30 teams in the league, it's time to start thinking about next year. 

That rings especially true for the Bruins, who fell just short of a title, and the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Cup favorites for most of the 2018-19 season who were shockingly swept in the first round of the playoffs. 

Other top teams looking to rebound include the Vegas Golden Knights, San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche in the West and the Toronto Maple Leafs alongside the Bruins and Lightning in the East. 

The Blues, a Cinderella team in their own right this season behind an interim head coach and a rookie goaltender, aren't being fully counted out for a repeat in 2020, but they certainly have a steep road ahead of them. 

Take a look below at each NHL team's way-too-early odds of hoisting the 2020 Stanley Cup, courtesy of sportsbook.ag
