Even strength is a definite weakness for NHL's Rangers


With 37 games played, the Rangers are painted into the playoff picture, and they’re even in the Presidents’ Trophy conversation. However, given their Stanley Cup odds (22-1), oddsmakers don’t seem to be as threatened by the Rangers as they are the Hurricanes (12-1), Capitals (16-1) or Penguins (20-1).

Entering Tuesday, the Blueshirts were tied for third in the NHL in points (50) and ranked sixth in points percentage (.694), but they were tied for 11th in BetMGM’s Stanley Cup futures. In fact, they were listed at 25-1 prior to the season, so it doesn’t appear that the betting market has bought into the hype. They’re certainly not pretenders, but if those with skin in the game don’t feel strongly enough about the play of the Rangers to warrant moving the odds, maybe there is something holding the team back from being considered a contender.
