Capitals Season Odds

The Washington Capitals hope to ride their success in 2007 all the way to a Stanley Cup in 2008-09. Oddsmakers have established the Caps’ odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 15/1.

If nothing else, Washington will once again have a tremendous coaching staff again this year, led by 2007 Coach of the Year Bruce Boudreau. The Caps will also lean on Hart Trophy-winner Alex Ovechkin, who led the NHL in 65 goals and 112 points last year.

Ovechkin will also have some help this year from forwards Nick Backstrom, who scored 69 points in 2007, Alex Semin, who is coming off a 26-goal season, and Brooks Laich, who scored 21 goals last year. Defensemen Mike Green also has plenty of speed to burn and even scored 18 goals last year, which led all NHL players at his position.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have listed the Capitals’ odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 15/1. Bodog also has Washington at 15/1, while gives the Caps a 15/1 shot.

The Capitals should once again lead the Southeast Division, although they’ll get stiff competition from the Carolina Hurricanes. The Caps have one of the best offenses in the conference, and having Boudreau behind the bench usually gives them a leg up against the competition. But Ovechkin and Co. will have to keep the offense strong because the defense, special teams and goaltending is only slightly above average. Still, this is the team to beat in the division and could be a solid value bet to win the Stanley Cup.
