The NHL's new division alignment and 56-game schedule for the 2021 season is showing top-heavy strength as expected in the West. Two teams at the top of the NHL futures are off to good starts. The Vegas Golden Knights (5-1) and Colorado Avalanche (4-3) are currently co-favorites to win the Stanley Cup at +700 odds. Just behind them at FanDuel Sportsbook is the defending Stanley Cup champions Tampa Bay Lightning (3-1) with odds of +850.

The Maple Leafs (6-2) have the most wins in the early going of the NHL season.
