Canucks Season Odds

Can some new additions make the Vancouver Canucks Cup contenders this year? Oddsmakers have established the Canucks’ odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 35/1.

New general manager Mike Gillis wanted to make a splash this offseason, but it looks like he came up a bit short in forwards Pavol Demitra and Steve Bernier. But the club still offers some good talent in goalie Roberto Luongo and defensemen Mattias Ohlund and Willie Mitchell.

The Canucks will rely on twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin to provide the offense again this year. Daniel is coming off a 29-goal season while Henrik racked up 61 assists. And the newly acquired Demitra should also provide some scoring opportunities too, considering he amassed 54 points in 2007.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have listed the Canucks’ odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup at 30/1. Bodog has Vancouver at 35/1, while Sportsbook.com gives the Canucks a 40/1 shot.

Even though Gillis couldn’t acquire a ton of big names this offseason, Vancouver is still an improved team. The Canucks easily have the best defense in the Northwest Division and their goaltending situation is outstanding with Luongo. But where’s the offense going to come from? The club better hope the Sedin brothers can overachieve this year and their play inspires the rest of the top line. The Canucks also need to get a better start at home this season considering they lost six of their first seven home games last year. Still, you have to love what you see from this team’s defense and goaltending and those two units alone could help Vancouver compete with the revamped Edmonton Oilers in the division.
