The Hawks come in at 14/1.  That seems just about right.  If Corey Crawford can rebound from a sub par season, and Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa, and Patrick Kane return fully healthy, the Hawks are as strong a team as any in the West.

If you're looking for a good value pick, take a gander at the Carolina Hurricanes at 22/1.  Carolina has had a fantasic offseason.  They've added Jordin Staal and Alex Semin to an already strong core that underachieved last season.  Their defense is still a bit of a concern, but Carolina has the offensive weapons and goaltending to win the Cup.  I'm surprised to see their odds so low.
