Best Pacific Division Betting Sites

The NHL’s Pacific Division could also be referred to as the NHL’s two-tier system. During the 2015-16 season, both the Anaheim Ducks (103 points) and Los Angeles Kings (102) topped the century plateau and the San Jose Sharks (98) flirted with it. But the other four teams in the divison – the Arizona Coyotes, Calgary Flames, Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers – all finished with below-.500 slates. It’s been a long drought for each of these teams. The Coyotes haven’t tasted playoff hockey since 2011-12. [+]

The NHL’s Pacific Division could have been referred to as the No Canada zone during the 2015-16 season. The division’s three Canadian teams – the Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks – occupied the bottom three places in the standings of the seven-team group.

There’s been a long dry spell in terms of titles for each of the Pacific Division’s trio of Canadian clubs. The Flames won their only Stanley Cup title in 1988-89, while the Edmonton Oilers were Stanley Cup champions most recently in 1989-90. But those are recent wins compared to the city of Vancouver.

Though the Canucks have played in three final series in franchise history – in 1981-82, 1993-94 and 2010-11 – they’ve never earned the right to lift Lord Stanley’s mug. The city’s only Stanley Cup win was garnered by the Vancouver Millionaires of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association in 1914-15, two seasons prior to the birth of the NHL.

The Oliers last played a postseason game in 2006. The Flames were playoff participants just once between 2009-10 and 2015-16. The Canucks missed the playoffs twice in three seasons between 2013-14 and 2015-16 and haven’t earned a postseason series win since 2011.

Pacific Division Standings Right Now

Here’s where you will find the up to date Pacific Division standings and a long-held theory that pacific time zone teams couldn’t succeed in the NHL because the additional they endured simple wore them out has been put out to pasture. [+]

A team from California appeared in seven successive Western Conference finals between 2010-16. In that span the Los Angeles Kings won a pair of Stanley Cup titles. The Anaheim Ducks were Stanley Cup champions in 2006-07 and both the San Jose Sharks (2008-09) and the Vancouver Canucks (2010-11, 2011-12) won the Presidents’ Trophy. The Canucks have appeared in three Stanley Cup finals in franchise history.

How To Win At NHL Pacific Division Betting

You could say that the Pacific Division is California dreaming. The Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks are all legitimate Stanley Cup threats and at least one of those three teams appeared in 11 of 13 Western Conference finals between 2003-2016 and all of them played in the Stanley Cup final.

All of the Pacific Division teams have enjoyed their winning moments over that span. The Vancouver Canucks (2010-11), Edmonton Oilers (2005-06) and Calgary Flames (2003-04) all came within a victory of taking the Stanley Cup final, while in 2011-12 the Arizona Coyotes rolled to the Western Conference final, the deepest playoff run in franchise history.

If someone asked you the first team from a Pacific time zone to win a Stanley Cup, you’d probably answer the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks. Were the question posed as to which Pacific time zone team first played in the Stanley Cup final series, the most logical answer would be the 1981-82 Vancouver Canucks. In both cases, you’d be wrong. In fact you’d be way off. 

The first team from the West Coast to win a Stanley Cup was the Seattle Metropolitans of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association in 1916-17, defeating the defending champion Montreal Canadiens in a best-of-five final series.

One year earlier, the PCHA’s Portland Rosebuds – yes, that was really their nickname – became the first West Coast team to appear in a Stanley Cup final, losing to the Canadiens in the series.
