You have to win to show that you're the real deal. 

The Columbus Blue Jackets were 20/1 to win the Stanley Cup the day after the Pittsburgh Penguins hoisted it for the second year in a row. 

It looks like, despite a trade and possible internal improvement, there wasn't any change to their line as training camp is set to open. 

The bookmaker Bovada released their updated odds and not much change was made at the top as the Penguins and Edmonton Oilers improved their chances. The Penguins went from 9/1 odds to 7/1 odds. The Oilers went from 12/1 to 9/1.

The odds also give the Blue Jackets the fourth best odds in the Metropolitan Division behind the Penguins, Washington Capitals, and New York Rangers. Both the Capitals and Rangers odds increased since the initial offseason odds.
