The New York Islanders have won seven in a row and are the hottest team in the NHL. They are a team that finished fourth in what was a tough Eastern Conference last season, compiling 103 points. Yet, the Islanders still can’t get much love from the bookmakers. The Isles entered Monday at +3700 to win the Stanley Cup, up only slightly from the +4500 of the previous week at 888sport.

I think the Islanders should be in the +1000s or +2000s, so by all means, hop on that price now before the bookmakers catch up. You can grab those odds by clicking on the “CLAIM” button above. I think that’s a worthy bet for a team that not only was one of the NHL’s best last year, but are out to another great start again.

Why You Should Back the Islanders

New York is coached by Barry Trotz, who took a team to a Stanley Cup triumph two years ago in Washington. He knows how to win. Don’t forget, the Islanders lost all-star center and captain John Tavares to free agency before last season to Toronto, and everybody took pity on them.

There continues to be a perception that the Islanders are a cheap organization that always has trouble with things like their arena and ownership. That was true for many years, and the product on the ice certainly suffered. But the Islanders are a team with – finally – a new arena to look forward to, with an 18,000-seat venue slated to be ready in Belmont Park by next season. Ownership seems stable and the Isles have the legendary Lou Lamoriello as their GM.

Another thing to like about the Isles’ long-term chances: They still have some pretty good space under the salary cap – nearly $5 million. They should be able to go out and land a nice rental player at the trade deadline. The Islanders heavily pursued Artemi Panarin over the summer as a high-priced free agent, so the notion that they don’t want to spend to better the product doesn’t fly.

The Islanders do have some question marks in goal with veterans Semyon Varlamov and Thomas Greiss. The duo has a combined two playoff series wins (one each) in their fairly long NHL careers, and both have shown tendencies to be really streaky with their play.

If the Islanders keep producing close to their overall record (8-3-0), which I think they will, and add a nice rental or two at the deadline, they will be serious Cup contenders. I think they already are, even if the oddsmakers don’t.
