Although the Rangers may hold the advantage both in the division and on the NHL futures board, there’s a reason the Penguins - regardless of where they may sit in the conference - are widely considered a perennial threat.

Would a Sidney Crosby return down the stretch give the Pens the advantage they need to cash in on the NHL odds that give them a 12/1 shot at winning the title? The Rangers, in contrast, lead the entire league with 11/2 odds on that same Stanley Cup futures line.

Although there’s no word on when Sid the Kid might make his return to the ice in Pittsburgh, NHL odds makers haven’t ignored the fact that the man has been skating consistently since last month. Is a symptom-free Crosby imminent?

Even with their All-Star center, however, the Penguins have a long way to go before they’re the talk of the conference. Led by goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, the Rangers have legitimately emerged as the team to beat in the East. 

Is New York simply due for a deep playoff run? Weigh in on the NHL odds line today.
