NHL Hockey - Stanley Cup - Odds to win in 2018 - Focus on Las Vegas Knights. The Vegas Golden Knights surprised almost everyone this past season, as they managed to make the playoffs in their very first year as an expansion team.

That would have been a fine year for any club - could the Golden Knights continue their success into the playoffs, especially against a very tough LA Kings team that has won the Stanley Cup multiple times over the past decade?

The answer to that question has been a resounding yes, as the Golden Knights have managed to post a 3-0 series lead over the very gritty and physical LA Kings squad.

This strong result has some whispering about the possibility of the Golden Knights winning the Stanley Cup this season. That whisper has turned into a roar, as the Golden Knights are currently listed at 4/1 to win the Stanley Cup, ahead of teams such as the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning.
