Long Odds for Rangers

The sportsbooks are not giving the New York Rangers very favorable odds of winning the Stanley Cup as they go into the playoffs. One statistical analysis gives them a 0.7% chance of winning the cup. That seems to be pretty much the consensus. Well, the NY Rangers will just have to prove everyone wrong.
