Excellent: BLUES are cup favorites, got that? BLUES! Not Kings. BLUES!

So now maybe we can stop all this psy-ops nonsense about the Kings being the new #1 in the West. From ProHockeyTalk:

Blues favorites to win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history

The St. Louis Blues are the new favorites to win the Stanley Cup, according to online bookmaker Bovada.

Here are the Cup odds for the eight remaining teams:

St. Louis Blues 15/4

New York Rangers 9/2

Philadelphia Flyers 9/2

Nashville Predators 5/1

Los Angeles Kings 13/2

New Jersey Devils   9/1

Washington Capitals 9/1

Phoenix Coyotes 11/1

[…]

As for the Blues, this would have to be the first time they’ve been favorites in the elite eight. The year they won the Presidents’ Trophy (2000), they lost in the first round. Maybe 1991, when they lost to underdog Minnesota in the second round. […] […] The Blues went to the final three straight times from 1968 to 1970 and were swept in all three series. (When the league expanded in 1968, it put all the expansion teams in one division, so an expansion team was guaranteed to make the final.)
