Canadiens Season Odds

Can the Northeast defending champion Montreal Canadiens repeat this season? Oddsmakers have established the Canadiens’ odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 10/1.

The Canadiens were busy this offseason, signing forwards Robert Lang and Alex Tanguay, although general manager Bob Gainey couldn’t convince free agent Mats Sundin to join the Habs this offseason. Lang is coming off a 21-goal season while Tanguay finished with 40 assists in 2007.

The Canadiens will rely on Carey Price to protect the net and while he’ll be playing in his first full season, he did finish with a .920 save percentage last year. If the youngster can step again this season, Montreal should repeat as Northeast Division champs.

Bet Montreal Canadiens 2009 Stanley Cup Odds

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have listed the Canadiens odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 8/1. Bodog has Montreal at 10/1, while Sportsbook.com gives the Habs an 8/1 shot.

Oddsmakers have also listed Montreal as a 5/1 favorite to win the Eastern Conference this season.

The Canadiens are once again the most talented team in the Northeast with one of the best offenses and goaltending situations in the division. One thing going against Montreal, however, is the fact that it hasn’t won back-to-back division titles in 19 years. Still, with Lang and Tanguay joining an already great offense that includes Alex Kovalev and Tomas Plekanec, the Habs are going to be a serious contender for the Stanley Cup.
