New York Rangers Odds to Win the 2009 Stanley Cup

Don't look now but the New York Rangers have the most number of points in the NHL - 21.  Their odds to win the 2009 Stanley Cup entering this new season were set at +1400 for a payout potential of $1400 on every $100 bet at Sports Interaction

Well those odds have now been slashed.  At press time we didn't have the latest updated odds.

The Rangers are off to the best start in franchise history, even if they were dismantled this past Saturday night playing the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"The trolley came off the tracks with the silly passes and the turnovers in the neutral zone," New York coach Tom Renney said. "We started turning the puck over, and allowed the Leafs to get back in the game."

"The Rangers have been the busiest of NHL teams with 12 games through Oct. 27, and their busy schedule has come at a good time for them as they have played solid hockey right from the start,"  writes Craig Simpson of CBC.

"It began in Prague where they won both games of their season-opening double header against the Tampa Bay Lightning and they haven't let the long travel back to North America slow them down. With a 9-2-1 record, they are the top team in the NHL, and head coach Tom Renney, in his sixth year, has his group off to a franchise-best start."

Simpson goes on to point out that this season's early success seems to justify the eight-year rebuilding process that general manager Glen Sather has endured.

"At times it was painful, and after the first four years without playoffs, Sather's team is now looking for its fourth straight playoff run.  For years the Rangers had hung on to veteran players and brought in big-name personalities that at times had more ego than they had game. Breaking the ties with Ranger heroes like Mark Messier, Mike Richter and Brian Leetch were difficult moves given their years of quality service and Stanley Cup history, but were necessary in order to move on and turn the page as a franchise.

"This year, the significance of saying good-bye to older, big-ticket players like Jagr, Straka and 39-year-old Brendan Shanahan, and not getting into a bidding war for super pest Sean Avery is not lost on New York's success. This is a different and younger Ranger mix."

The San Jose Sharks were within attacking distance of the Rangers at press time.  They had 20 points to date.
