The NHL offseason hasn't even really started yet and we already have odds for the 2012-13 Stanley Cup champion. The Pittsburgh Penguins are opening as the early favorites with a 7/1 shot via the folks at Bovada.

The Los Angeles Kings, this year's winner, are second at 11/1, while the Columbus Blue Jackets, Minnesota Wild, and New York Islanders are the longshots at 75/1.

The complete list:

Pittsburgh Penguins 7/1
Los Angeles Kings 11/1
Chicago Blackhawks 12/1
Detroit Red Wings 12/1
New York Rangers 12/1
St. Louis Blues 12/1
Vancouver Canucks 12/1
Boston Bruins 14/1
Philadelphia Flyers 14/1
Nashville Predators 18/1
San Jose Sharks 22/1
Anaheim Ducks 25/1
Buffalo Sabres 25/1
Tampa Bay Lightning 25/1
Washington Capitals 25/1
New Jersey Devils 30/1
Florida Panthers 35/1
Toronto Maple Leafs 35/1
Colorado Avalanche 40/1
Dallas Stars 40/1
Ottawa Senators 40/1

Carolina Hurricanes 50/1
Edmonton Oilers 60/1

Doesn't seem to be much faith in the Devils, especially since their odds are pretty similar to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
