Not long after the Blackhawks raised the Stanley Cup in June, Bovada installed them as the NHL’s 7-1 favorite to repeat in 2016.

And why not? With the three-cups-in-six-years core seemingly returning, who wouldn’t make them the front runner.

Then came the Brandon Saad trade. Then Patrick Sharp gets dumped. Then the Patrick Kane investigation hits.

Here are the current odds to win the Stanley Cup from Bovada:
