The respect the Capitals had for Hendricks wasn't mutually shared with O'Brien.

Caps Outsider’s Phil Van der Vossen was in Las Vegas last week, taking a look at the preseason odds to win the 2013-14 Stanley Cup. Caesars has the Caps at 20/1, with 11 teams having better odds. Last year, the Caps at one point had 12/1 odds to win the Cup. Meanwhile, Alex Ovechkin has 7/2 odds to win the Rocket Richard trophy, and Braden Holtby has 35/1 odds to lead the league in wins.
In other news that will come as no surprise, Vegas has the Pittsburgh Penguins on top of the list to win the Stanley Cup, which simply means Caps fans will make way more money when Washington wins the Cup. Right?
