The Minnesota Wild have been given dismal 75/1 odds to win the Stanley Cup next year, tied for the worst odds in the lead.

The Minnesota Wild started off their 2011/2012 campaign with some of the hottest play in the league, holding the top record in the NHL for a while and looking solid. Unfortunately, the 'regression to the mean' meme hit them hard and they sunk down to the bottom of the NHL as the season went along, ending up out of the playoffs.

Bovada has released the odds for the 2013 Stanley Cup, and the oddsmakers seem to think that the Wild's second half of last season is far more representative of the team's ability than their first half. The Wild are at the very bottom of the league with 75/1 odds, tied with the Columbus Blue Jackets and New York Islanders.

The Pittsburgh Penguins and defending champion Los Angeles Kings lead the rankings with 7/1 and 11/1 odds respectively. Minnesota is the worst in the Northwest division in the odds - the Vancouver Canucks are on the top of the division at 12/1.
