While rules differ depending on the sportsbook, the majority of NHL futures wagers have been voided due to the suspension of the season, leaving a number of bettors lamenting what were once destined to be winning tickets.

If you had placed any of these bets before the start of the season, you have our deepest sympathies.

Boston Bruins over 100.5

We begin with the worst of them all. With 12 games left to play, the Bruins were sitting at 100 points. One more point before the suspension of the season and a number of books would have already cashed the ticket. Talk about horrible timing - this one really hurts.

Detroit Red Wings under 76.5

The Red Wings had just 39 points through 71 games. If you had an under ticket, chances are you'd already cashed it in your head by December. Let's just hope you didn't spend the money yet.

Edmonton Oilers over 85.5

Those who were high on the Oilers this season were set to be rewarded with the team sitting at 83 points with 11 games remaining. Even a disastrous finish to the season likely wouldn't have been enough to stop this over bet from cashing.

Montreal Canadiens under 89.5

Injuries and an inability to win close games derailed the Canadiens' season. Montreal needed to finish the campaign 9-1-1 to hit this total. Over backers, your blushes have been spared.

New Jersey Devils under 90.5

The Devils were the latest in a long list of teams to win the offseason and crumble when the games actually started. None of their summer moves panned out, as they had just 68 points with 13 games remaining and needed to finish 11-1-1 to surpass their point total.

Philadelphia Flyers over 90.5

Imagine the euphoria over backers experienced during the Flyers' nine-game win streak, only for the season to be suspended days later. They needed two more points with 13 games left to play.

San Jose Sharks under 94.5

Even a 12-0-0 finish to the season wouldn't have been enough for the Sharks to hit this total. It was a disastrous campaign in San Jose. The suspension came in handy for people who had futures on the Sharks to win the Stanley Cup (like me).

St. Louis Blues over 96.5

The Blues picked up where they left off after winning the Stanley Cup last season. With 94 points through 71 games, they were going to comfortably surpass this total.

Toronto Maple Leafs under 102.5

If you took my advice before the season, chances are you had some money on the Leafs finishing below 102.5 points this year. Toronto needed to finish 11-1-0 to hit this mark. The toughest part for us under bettors is accepting the fact we're no richer than those who backed the over.
