Devils Season Odds

With Martin Brodeur in net, the New Jersey Devils are going to be contenders again this season. Oddsmakers have established the Devils’ odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 18/1.

Despite getting up their in age, goalie Martin Brodeur is coming off an outstanding season, amassing 44 wins and a .920 save percentage in 77 games in 2007. And with the club signing free agent Brian Rolston, who scored 31 goals last year, maybe Brodeur won’t have to play in so many one-goal games. (New Jersey played in 43 one-goal games in 2007.)

The signing of Rolston was huge, but another solid season by Zach Parise would do even more for the Devils this season. Parise scored 32 goals last year and could be even better this season playing alongside Rolston and Brian Gionta.

Bet New Jersey Devils 2009 Stanley Cup Odds

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have listed the Devils odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 16/1. Bodog has New Jersey at 18/1, while Sportsbook.com gives the Devils a 15/1 shot.

Oddsmakers have also listed New Jersey at 8/1 to win the Eastern Conference this season.

Perhaps only the Rangers in the Atlantic Division have a better goaltending situation than the Devils. With Brodeur in net, New Jersey is going to be competitive this year. But the club is only average in other areas, including defense and special teams. Rolston should boost the offense, although as previously mentioned, Parise and Gionta need to step up for the unit to be explosive. If they do, New Jersey could be one of the surprises in the Eastern Conference, if not the NHL.
