2022 NHL Futures & Best Odds: Toronto Maple Leafs Futures

The Toronto Maple Leafs' season thus far has been a bit of a rollercoaster as the regular season heads into its final month. Toronto seems to be figuring out most of their goaltending and defensive issues, but will those hold come playoff time? We should find out in a month. If the Leafs end up with another early exit, you can bet they'll lead the charge in the goaltending market this offseason.

Unlike the West, where Colorado appears to be the clear favorite, online sportsbooks show that the East is wide open with seven teams coming in with odds under +1000 to represent the conference in the Stanley Cup. Let's take a look at the Leafs' Eastern Conference Odds and where they stack up.

Odds to Win the Eastern Conference

DraftKings BetMGM Caesars
Florida Panthers +275 +240 +290
Tampa Bay Lightning +450 +425 +450
Carolina Hurricanes +500 +450 +500
Toronto Maple Leafs +600 +600 +625
Boston Bruins +700 +800 +800
Pittsburgh Penguins +800 +750 +800
New York Rangers +900 +800 +900
Washington Capitals +1300 +1400 +1600

Taking a look at Stanley Cup futures, the names at the top are very similar to the teams to win the Eastern Conference. Colorado is the odds-on favorite and has been for most of the 2021-22 season, but after the Avalanche, six of the next seven teams with the shortest odds to win the Cup are from the Eastern Conference.

This shows us how stacked the Eastern Conference has been all season and how wide open it truly is. While anything can happen in the Stanley Cup playoffs, the odds tell us the Western Conference is very much a two-horse race, while the East is there for the taking. Let's take a look at some futures odds to take home Lord Stanley's Cup.

There is one market where the Leafs are represented at the top as a clear favorite: Auston Matthews to win the Hart Trophy. Now that he's hit the 50-goal mark it's going to take quite a drop-off in the last month of the season for him to not take home the MVP award. There are a few other players nipping at Matthews' heels depending on where you look, but as long as he has a healthy month of April and remains relatively productive, the Hart Trophy is his to lose. Let's take a look at some Hart Trophy Odds.

Auston Matthews +175 +150 +130
Connor McDavid +275 +275 +350

Jonathan Huberdeau +1000 +800 +1000
Leon Draisaitl +600 +1400 +1200
Alex Ovechkin +1800 +1400 +1600
