With all the Suter and Parise talk getting a little bit out of control I figured I would throw this out there to mix it up a bit. Over on CBS Sports they posted a list of the odds for everyteam at winning the cup. You can click here for the complete list or just look at the quote below:

Pittsburgh Penguins 7/1
Los Angeles Kings 11/1
Chicago Blackhawks 12/1
Detroit Red Wings 12/1
New York Rangers 12/1
St. Louis Blues 12/1
Vancouver Canucks 12/1
Boston Bruins 14/1
Philadelphia Flyers 14/1
Nashville Predators 18/1
San Jose Sharks 22/1
Anaheim Ducks 25/1
Buffalo Sabres 25/1
Tampa Bay Lightning 25/1
Washington Capitals 25/1
New Jersey Devils 30/1
Florida Panthers 35/1
Toronto Maple Leafs 35/1
Colorado Avalanche 40/1
Dallas Stars 40/1
Ottawa Senators 40/1
Phoenix Coyotes 40/1
Winnipeg Jets 40/1
Calgary Flames 50/1
Carolina Hurricanes 50/1
Edmonton Oilers 60/1
Montreal Canadiens 60/1
Columbus Blue Jackets 75/1
Minnesota Wild 75/1
New York Islanders 75/1


Curious as to everyones thoughts. Argree? Disagree? If anyones up for it I would like to see some personal rankings, even its just the top 10. I will post mine after I mull it over some. I will say this though, I cannot believe Pittsburgh is number one. They should be in the top 10 but there are teams I think with better odds then them. Oh the love that people have for the Pens.

ESPN did something similar and ran a story about the five teams most likely to win it all next year. They went with Boston, Vancouver, Pittsburgh, The Rangers, and the Kings. I assume that being a sports writer during the off season would have to be a boring hell.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."

Was this list put out before or after Lids retired? Because being the fourth favorite to win the Cup even without LIdstrom in our lineup AND Brad Stuart gone, that is not too bad...if the Heavens open up and we land BOTH Parise AND Suter, I could see that #4 spot rising to #1 or at least #2...

That's a good question. On the article itself it was published today but who knows when the actual list/odds were determined. But I agree if we land them we could jump. I would expect this list to change a bit by the time October comes. As of this exact day I am not sure who I would put at the 1-5 spot. It is so tough making a list like this.

Lol how is Chicago that high? Two years of barely squeaking into the playoffs and first round exits and they still have an insanely poor defense and the worst goalie tandem in the league.

If Parise sees this report then he won't sign with Wild or Devils. Lol

I'm surprised the Wings even have that good of odds. Mostly because I've seen too many people argue that the current Wings team isn't even a playoff team.

So the Penguins give up 30 goals in 6 playoff games and only manage to win two games.

The Kings give up the same number of goals in 20 playoff games and go on to win the Cup with a 16-4 record.

But they give the Penguins better odds at winning the Cup? Makes sense. :blink:

I don't see why Pittsburgh has twice the odds any other team does, but I agree with Detroit being about on par with Chicago and the Rangers.

It was a fluke. Nobody says New Jersey was the best team in the East this year.

Aren't oddsmakers guided by flash more than anything?

I'm not surprised that they chose the Pens. Years of tanking have allowed them to have both of the modern day versions of Gretzky (Crosby) and Mario Lemieux (Malkin), which seems to be pretty appealing to the media and oddsmakers.

Didn't Vegas say that the Tigers have a 4 or 5 to 1 odds to be the next winners of the World Series mostly because they had the MVP combo of Verlander/Cabrera and then added Fielder?

Most of my family was pretty surprised they made the odds that good for the Tigers.

Devils at 30-1? Did Parise already leave? I mean didn't they JUST play deep into the Final? I Can see certainly not making them the favorite but 30-1? I'd sooner say in the 17-1 range

These odds are pointless before the start of free agency.
