    With the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting borders and travel, the NHL has re-arranged the division structure for the 2020-21 NHL season. This will severely impact the NHL Division odds, as some teams will get an easier ride to a divisional title and a playoff spot.

    The teams in the East, Central, and West division will play each team in their division eight times. The North division is made up of solely Canadian hockey teams, as the NHL does not want teams consistently crossing the American and Canadian borders. No team will play a team outside of their division until the playoffs.

    Use the graphs to see which teams are on the rise, which are declining, and who is considered a legitimate threat to win their division and Stanley Cup.
