(CBS) The Blackhawks’ season ended in Game 7 of this year’s Western Conference Final, but there’s no lack of respect and expectations for them heading into 2014-’15.

Chicago is a co-favorite to win the Stanley Cup next season in LVH’s future odds that were recently released, according to Covers.com. LVH set the Blackhawks’ odds to win the title at 7/1, which mirrored the odds given to the Bruins.

The Kings, Penguins and Blues all check in with 10/1 futures odds. The Rangers are tabbed at 15/1.

The Kings and Rangers are currently playing in this year’s Stanley Cup Final, with Los Angeles leading the series 2-0. The Kings eliminated the Blackhawks this season and won the Stanley Cup in 2012. Chicago beat Boston for the 2013 Stanley Cup.
