Islanders Season Odds

Will the lack of offense hurt the New York Islanders this season? Oddsmakers have established the Islanders’ odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 66/1.

The Islanders are concentrating on a youth movement, but they did sign defensive specialist Mark Streit and center Doug Weight in the offseason. Goaltender Rick DiPietro is still the strength of the team and he’s coming off knee and hip surgeries, but he should be healthy.

Streit and forwards Blake Comeau, Jeff Tambellini and Kyle Okposo will be counted on to carry the offense. Okposo is the best prospect in the organization. At 20 years old, the right-winger has a nice blend of size and skill and the team hopes to cash in on his immense potential.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have listed the Islanders odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 95/1. Bodog has New York at 66/1, while Sportsbook.com gives the Islanders a 100/1 shot.

Oddsmakers have also listed New York as a 50/1 favorite to win the Eastern Conference this season.

If the Islanders are going to contend this year, they’re offense is going to have to overachieve. They produced league-low 2.3 goals per game last year and were the only NHL team without a 50-point scorer on their roster. Youngsters Comeau, Tambellini and Okposo have a bright future, but they’ll need time to develop. If they can come together this season, DiPietro is obviously good enough to put this team over the top. But they have a lot of stiff competition playing in the same division as the Penguins, Rangers, Flyers and Devils.
