For the big bettors who like to take big risks, Florida Panthers goaltender Spencer Knight could be an interesting option with his +800 odds, while Quinton Byfield of the Los Angeles Kings has +1200 odds and the other Anaheim Ducks representative, Jamie Drysdale, is at +2500. These are all talented players who will have a chance to win the precious trophy. The predictions are there, yes, but in the end, there are always surprises during the season.
