While the 2021 NHL entry draft isn't viewed as being as deep as the 2020 class, as with Alexis Lafreniere last season, there appears to be a consensus No. 1 - Michigan's Owen Power. The Wolverines freshman defenceman didn't look out of place playing with the men at the IIHF world championship, winning a gold medal skating for Canada, playing in the top defensive pairing. Power is almost certainly going to the Buffalo Sabres.

NHL Futures: Week 19 Odds Update
Stanley Cup Championship Week 19 Contenders
Looking the latest overall National Hockey League standings, familiar faces continue to populate the upper echelon, as Tampa Bay owns a one point lead over Vegas. For the 15th straight segment, the Lightning are consensus top chalk at top CSB recommended puck betting sportsbooks. Following their first three-game losing streak - Tampa Bay rebounded with wins in five of six games prior to NHL Week 19 action. It is tough to argue the Bolts not being the cream of the NHL especially with Nikita Kucherov (66 PTS) and Steven Stamkos (60 PTS) sitting first and third in the scoring race.
Being backstopped solidly, by three-time Stanley Cup winning netminder Marc-André Fleury, Vegas continues to roll as the Golden Knights are just one of four teams tagged with a triple digit Stanley Cup price. Boston and Nashville as also in that small crowd as the other 27 NHL squads have a money line of (+1100) or better. Quietly taking care of business, Winnipeg is tied in third overall with the Predators while the Bruins are one point back with games in hand. Bookmakers haven't fully bought into the Jets as the Manitoba Crew are currently carrying a (+1100) NHL title price.
Heading Into Week 19: Toronto recovered from a 1-2-3 mini-skid with a 5-1-0 recent run.

Stanley Cup Futures Odds Update: Week 19 @ 10:00 PM ET February 5, 2018.
05/02/18 Eastern Conference Championship Odds Update
Far from a comfortable lead, Tampa Bay still owns the top Eastern Conference playoff position. The Lightning (36-13-3) are 6-4 over their last ten but Boston has closed the gap. Prior to NHL Week 13 action, the Bruins were ninth in the East and 15 points back. Although their impressive undefeated string was snapped at 18 games, after a 3-1 loss on 30/1/18 to Anaheim, Boston is 19-2-4 over their last 25 matches. With two games in hand - the Bruins now trails the Bolts by just five points.
Washington and Toronto are tied in the fight for third, with the 65 points each, though the Capitals have played two fewer contests. Also, Washington is first in the Metropolitan Division, by three points over the New Jersey Devils, while Toronto trails Boston and Tampa Bay by five and ten points respectively in the Atlantic Division. Sporting a (+1400) East title price at Bodog, and though they are a team on the rise with a solid core of young players, we still aren't dealing with the Devils.
East Playoff Race: Three points separate five teams in the battle for two East Wild Card spots.

05/02/18 Western Conference Championship Odds Update
Prior to the start of the 2017-18 NHL season, what kind of odds would have been placed on Vegas and Winnipeg owning the top two positions in the Western Conference standings with nine weeks left on the slate? Heading into Week 1 action, the Golden Knights (+6600) and Jets (+2800) were massive pups to win the West. Fast-forward 19 weeks and their highest end prices currently sit at (+360) and (+500) respectively. Full marks for bucking the odds - neither squad is slowing down.
Letting the league know their 2016-17 WC Championship wasn't a fluke, Nashville is the hottest squad in the West right now. The Predators have rolled to a 9-1-1 recent record as the Champs sit third - trailing Winnipeg by two points and Vegas five. St. Louis has winger Jaden Schwartz back in the fold and, despite missing 20 games, he is still the Blues third leading scorer. Four teams are within four points of top spot in the Central - Vegas owns a huge 10-point Pacific Division bulge.
West Playoff Race: Holding the two West Wild Card spots - Dallas and Minnesota are both hot.
Week Over Week: 30/01/18 to 05/02/18 Best Money Line Value

Phildelphia Eagles Are Super Bowl LII Champions
Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles who are 2018 National Football League Super Bowl LII Champions. Underdogs in all three of their 2018 playoff fights, SB MVP Nick Foles lead the Eagles to an action packed 41-33 victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The Whale, who placed a "multimillion" wager on the Eagles at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, was right in the end as Philadelphia joins New York, Chicago, Boston and Los Angeles as the only five US cities that are home to NFL Super Bowl, MLB World Series, NHL Stanley Cup and NBA Finals Championships.
Although the NFL never sleeps, Tom Brady & Crew have already been posted as favorites to claim Super Bowl LII, football takes a back seat to the NHL and NBA playoff battles now. With nine weeks left on the puck slate, plus ten on the hoops schedule, those postseason races will be electric down the stretch. Top online bookmakers have bettors covered with tons of daily wagering options on both sports. Also, and very exciting, the Boys of Summer are close to returning as the Tigers and Yankees will meet in the first spring training contest on February 23, 2018. We love sports!

Whether it's TV stations or online streams, fans can tune in using their phones, tablets, or kick it old school by watching on television. Gone are the days where you had to go to one room and wait for one time to watch the NHL. Here are the many ways to watch the NHL in Canada.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are one win away from capturing their second straight Stanley Cup title. They lead the best-of-seven Cup final series against the Montreal Canadiens by a 3-0 count. In the Cup final for the first time in 28 years, Montreal has lost nine of 33 previous Stanley Cup final series. However, the Canadiens have only ever been swept in a final series one time in their history.
The Stanley Cup has gone through some unique firsts during the past two NHL seasons thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year's Cup final series didn't end until September. This year, with the launch of the regular season delayed until January, the Cup final series is stretching into July. One facet that hasn't changed, though, is that no matter when wagers are placed on the games, the bettors want to be certain that they are placing those wagers with the best betting sites for the Stanley Cup Finals.
