Sharks’ Stanley Cup odds same as expansion Seattle Kraken

Sharks have very same Cup chances as group presently without gamers initially appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Sharks have actually been a bad hockey group the last 2 seasons.

They’re identified to be far better in 2021-22, dead-set on returning to the playoffs, however it’s hard to see that taking place without some major lineup turmoil this offseason.

The issue is, San Jose is really limited in its capability to upgrade the structure of the lineup. The majority of the bigger wages are unmovable or close, and the Sharks do not have much in the method of young NHL-ready gamers who might restore a considerable return in a trade. So, it should not come as a surprise that they rank near the bottom of the league in regards to 2021-22 Stanley Cup Champ chances.

The Sharks are plus-10,000 to win the Stanley Cup next season on PointsBet, meaning that a $100 bet would pay out $10,100. Only seven other teams have worse chances.

Of the two NHL groups that have identical chances to the Sharks’, one doesn’t even have anything resembling a full roster at this point. That team, of course, is the Seattle Kraken, who will build out their roster via the Expansion Draft later this month.

That’s not exactly what you would call a vote of confidence in San Jose. If the Sharks’ chances are going to improve before the start of next season, it’s going to be a busy couple of months.
