LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - A disappointing end to the Vegas Golden Knights' quest from the Stanley Cup didn't keep oddsmakers from believing "just wait 'til next year!"

Monday, the Westgate Las Vegas released its futures odds for the 2019-2020 Stanley Cup, and placed the Golden Knights odds at 10-1. Only the Tampa Bay Lightning had better odds, at 6-1.

Like the Golden Knights, the Lightning were first-round casualties in this year's Stanley Cup playoffs despite having the best regular-season record. Oddsmakers cite a solid core of veterans and plenty of young up and coming talent as reasons for VGK fans to be optimistic

Boston and Toronto odds were set at 10-1,  along with Vegas. San Jose, who knocked the Golden Knights out of the playoffs in a 7-game first-round thriller, are listed at 14-1
