The drive for 25 seems to be very much a 'reality' in 2016.
Montreal Canadiens Are #1 Favourite To Win Stanley Cup

The Montreal Canadiens' have never before achieved a 7 win start to a season and it has not gone unnoticed in the NHL and Las Vegas.

Friday, the Habs took the top spotas favourites overall to win the Stanley cup in 2016.

The team currently finds themselves ranked ahead of 2015's champion, the Chicago Blackhawks, as well as other strong contenders like the Tampa Bay Lightning, the New York Rangers and the Dallas Stars, to round off the top 5 hopefuls to take the cup.

  1. Montreal
  2. Chicago
  3. Tampa Bay
  4. New York Rangers
  5. Dallas Stars

Before the start of the 2015/2016 season, the 'Hawks were naturally the favourites to bring home the championship, but after a disappointing 4-3-0 start, the Habs took over.

Do you think this is an accurate ranking so soon into the season? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook!
