Blitz 7 Odds

Recommended Posts

I really don't know the B group well enough so somebody else can do that one. I have provided odds for A. Feel free to comment or add suggestions.

ANA canadiensfan66 +325 -- How can anyone pick against Roenick/Tikkanen plus big D and McLean in net. This is the team to beat.

CHI Zalex1414 +350 -- Big, solid forwards (Turgeon/Muller) and solid D plus Ranford in net will see the trapon in full force this season.

BUF Icestorm NHL94 +400 -- Lindros + Stevens = Keep your head up. This team will be in every game no doubt but will there be a playoff letdown...

PHI snoboarder3211 +500 -- Maybe a transition to adjust to new players so watch out for this team in the 2nd half.

MTL Freydey32 +550 -- A stong D will make up for average forwards. Personally I never bet against MTL come playoff time.

DAL KingRaph +600 -- A solid roster up front will carry this team far. DAL jumped from B to A last year and looks to keep improving.

PIT PerennialChoker +800 -- This team 1-5 should be able to play with anyone but will be judged on playoff success, possibly a darkhorse if they get hot.

NYR BoKnowsNHL94 +1000 -- Tough to pick against 66 and Fuhr as the supporting cast will make or break this team.

SJ houly8 +1200 -- Who knows what is going on with the SJ coach these days... Bure and company could disrupt the top of the standings if they are mentally stable.

LA dcicon5148 +1250 -- Jumping from B to A and bringing Gartner, Fleury, ZZ and Cujo could make for a suprising season if the offense gets going.

OTT xdeathsbloodx +1300 -- This team might have trouble scoring goals this season but should be solid on D and should be in most games.

VAN hokkeefan2 +1350 -- A tough team to disect as Klima and Housley will provide the Offense but other than that this team lacks star power and firepower.

Nice job in such a short time! My initial thoughts -- I'd give some better odds to the defending champ and #1 Blitz player based on IIHF rankings. And Carse -- from Blitz 02-06, he won 2 and 4, finals in 3&6. Oh, who did he lose to in seasons 3,5&6? Frey, Frey, and Frey. :lol:

So, my $1,000 bet will be:

$1,000 on DAL - KingRaph (+600) -- YEEEEEEEAAAAAAAH!

Being that each of their rosters had a lot of turnover I am guessing they will finish in the middle of the pack in the regular season but will of course have playoff success.

I took a shot at the "B" odds. Much less predictable, and you'll see the odds are much closer between everyone. I'm sure I will get burned on some of this.

I also linked each team to Robbie's write-up.

TOR da94wookiee +450 -- "A" level classic coach should crush opponents with Messier and Kasatonov.

STL Iceguy94 +450 -- Mogilny in the hands of a skilled coach. Look out.

NJ mcarthurbsu33 +500 -- Bondra, Fedorov, Kamensky will LIGHT IT UP.

QUE kupuckNHL94 +550 -- Kupuck will have to use his experience to make the most of of this team.

TB Sicarius Fulgur +550 -- I predict Gary Roberts will be in the top 3 scoring (in "B") in the regular season.

WPG eggink444 +600 -- Speed & size, with a great goalie. This team can beat you in many ways and will be dangerous all season.

HFD maverickz161 +650 -- Another mystery here. If Mav stays focused, Roy, Robitaille and Steve Smith will take him to the promise land.

WSH gretzkyonacold +700 -- Our favorite Blitz corresponant should make the playoffs with this well-balanced team.

OTT PRoBob388 +700 -- Kevin Stevens and Dave Manson anchor what should be a high hitting team. Lead the B league in GAA?

CGY Rage93 +700 -- Can the monster that is Ray Bourque turn around the Calgary Flames '06 season? I've never played the coach before.

EDM minpind +850 -- Firepower upfront, with Potvin in net for the Blitz newcomer. Darkhorse to go deep.

BOS Pearate +1000 -- Not sure that Jagr & Co. will be enough for Pearate to conquer the B league.

Place your bets!

I'd have Wookie a touch lower for lack of elite goal scoring, Eggink higher cos his team is just monstrous! Mav higher cos I think he's getting back to A league standard play, and me higher cos WSH are strong in all areas, with Sandstrom one of the top all time Blitz scorers. Everyone in the right ball park though.

I'm going $100 on Iceguy for the ability of the coach and Mogilny & Ellett dominating through the middle. Supporting cast leaves some question marks, but those 2 make a huge difference to his chances.

I see your null and void and RAISE you, as you have yourself missing the playoffs in your odds.

I'd be surprised if you didn't make the playoffs, but at the same time we both give the "longshot" 10-1 (+1000) odds to win the whole thing, so anything can happen. Looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

Robbie, if you put together some odds (either mine or Sicarius' format), I'll put together a little comparison chart on the different odds we all give, and an average.

Same for anyone else who wants to open up a sportsbook and post some odds!

I may do my "A" later and do the same with DC's figures.

I might would have given myself better odds but I found out some things about my players after the draft.

Roberts is having an issue with alcohol.

Ronning got turf toe (don't ask)

Lemieux is one hit away from being suspended 25 games.

Worst of all, Belfour is seeking professional help after this play.

(fast foward to about 3:50 into the video)

Great job Raph - these seem pretty spot on. Wookie with Messier has goal scoring written on it enough, a little help from Gilmour will be something you won't wanna bet against come playoffs. Iceguy with Mogilny will definitely be one of the toughest challenges in Blitz B League, Iceguy has proven himself to be one of the hardest competitors of the community. Macarthur has a great offense and will be a top three team this season, will he grace us with an AIM presence a little more often? Quebec - Oates/Linden/Murphy will be a solid core group on the defensive side but goal scoring will be a challenge if Oates and Linden aren't at their best. Sicarius will be a great darkhorse choice, awesome roster and had the experience of playing a challenging Blitz A schedule in season 6; Sicarius has the ability to be a top 2 team in Blitz 7. Egginks retained heavy players and a top goalie from season 6, the addition of Modano can only mean good things for Winnipeg. Mav's roster looks tougher than last seasons in my opinion, he'll need to utilize Roy to make the most of his team. LARobbie gotten better each season he plays; with selecting a roster to better suit his style he should be in the running come playoffs. Probob's Team is looking awesome as well, ditto raph on Probob having a tough defense. Chaos has improved his roster from last season, he can get it goin when he's on his game. Minpin - Potvin and a solid offense; I predict he'll be around come post-season play. Jagr can be a big boost to Pear's roster, the lack of weight on the blue line will have problems against heavy teams.

Manson and Tinordi are awesome, but they're getting pissed that they have to play for Vanbiesbrouck, he's ice cold right now.

As for the B odds, they're almost impossible to do (though that probably won't stop me from trying). A lot of depth, though I'd agree with wookiee being the favorite at this point.

My "A" odds.

I also linked each team to Robbie's write-up (for those done).

MTL Freydey32 +350 -- While I don't think this team is particularly strong, I didn't think so last year either and Frey won the whole thing! Oh, Frey also finished in the semis in seasons 4&5, and won season 3.

PHI snoboarder3211 +375 -- Coin-toss with Freydey, but the current champ gets better odds. Carse has either won or lost to Frey in the last 5 seasons. Light upfront this year, but filled with snipers. Gonna be interesting to see what Carse does with this group.

BUF IceStormNHL94 +400 -- Ice comes back with another good team, trying to crack into the Blitz finals for a chance at the cup. Riding a 2012 "A" title, his game is strong and he'll try to keep that momentum going.

ANH canadiensfan66 +450 -- Last year Gartner led the A league in points/game, and he has been replaced by Roenick, who was 2nd! Gonna be a tough team again.

DAL KingRaph +450 -- Strong team with Selanne's speed and Neely's strength. Can this be the 1st year for a Blitz playoff series win?

CHI Zalex1414 +475-- Record-setting regular season last year, finals appearance the year before. Roenick replaced with Muller. Zalex has the skills to win it all, but will rust be an issue?

PIT VocallyCaged +500 -- Unpredictable, but with Stevie Yzerman, VC can inflict some major damage. I have him in the playoffs where anything can happen.

NYR BoKnowsNHL94 +550 -- NHL'94's new iron man, BoKnows has a great team led by Super Mario, and Grant Fuhr in goal. Will the SNES playing time affect his GENS game?

SJ houly8 +900 -- Current "B" league champ returns with Bure and his record-setting 06 season. Houly has the skills to compete, so look out!

LA dcicon5148 +1300 -- High flying team led by Gartner and Fleury, with ZZ in the back. Sick team, DC has the firepower he needs to win.

FLA xdeathsbloodx +1500 -- The "B" league runner-up comes up into the "A" ranks, can he solidify a playoff spot and cause an upset with the shot king Brett Hull?

VAN hokkeefan2 +1800 -- The ultimate variable, as hokkee can compete with anyone. Always a potential dark horse, hokkee needs to harness Klima's speed with Wendel Clark's hard shot.

Place your bets!

Habs odds!

MTL Freydey32 +275 -- Very strong offensive dmen, he lost Yzerman but still he will likely ride a deep playoff run with his goalie control.

PHI snoboarder3211 +300 -- I think carse will have the highest scoring team with recchi cicc and makarov and iafrate lidstrom at backend but John Blue is one terrible goalie. If he pulls it off itll be with alot of 8-6 wins

CHI Zalex1414 +445-- Zalex's rust likely wont be an issue, especially once playoffs start he will be ready. Its essentially the same team as last season with Muller instead of JR, which adds some size balance to the team. He does lose some speed though but expect Zalex to be one of the top teams.

BUF IceStormNHL94 +475 -- Ice has a great roster this season, deep and balanced. And very big lineup. Can he finally start putting together some playoff wins?

ANH canadiensfan66 +550 -- Lots of people expecting a very offensive team, I think it will be a defensive season with a quick strike offense. This has to be one of the fastest teams but also a pretty light weight. Need to get over playoff hurdles Frey/Carse to succeed.

DAL KingRaph +550 -- Emerging as better and better every season, Raph looks ready to make a big leap this season with a dirty ass offense of Neely+Teemu. This is the darkhorse team that could upset everybody (see zalex few seasons ago)

PIT VocallyCaged +1000 -- VC is def Mr. Inconsistant he usually plays an offensive style that can keep up with anybody but lacks a defensive presence to take him to the next level. If he can finally play some good defense he can do some damage.

NYR BoKnowsNHL94 +1300 -- Bo is almost equally as inconsistant as VC, he is capable of beating anybody but has trouble putting it all together. Don't know what to expect from him, but likely will get into the playoffs where anything can happen. Maybe yet another series vs his brother lol.

SJ houly8 +2000 -- Houly should be able to grind out some wins and will def be in the hunt for a playoff spot with Bure.

LA dcicon5148 +2050 -- Fast fast team, will be relying on the offense to come up huge. Can he do some damage in the toughest league?

FLA xdeathsbloodx +2300 -- Like houly I expect xblood will grind out some wins vs everybody in the league and will not look out of place in A lg.

VAN hokkeefan2 +2800 -- Return to B league. LOL jk, if he stays sober he will be competetive. I hope to see him in a playoffs but it will tough with that hokkee style lineup :P.

Yeah ,I already tried to go down lol,maybe I will learn 1 day ,but I doubt it,I have only had 1 good team and I won B lg,but I am on wagon again so maybe i can pull out some wins with my speed and klimas shot.I think I will give freydey my aim password and kick some ass :lol:

For the HABS sportsbook, I put $200 on BoKnows, I like those odds, and $800 on HABS himself.

Here's the summary from the 3 who have put up odds. HABS and I have the same order, while DC has a different mix for the top 5. Order is sorted by average of the three.

Well he hasn't been seen for nearly a month probably? Unless Smoz has been speaking with him you have to assume he's not around don't you? I guess it will be determined by whether he makes the first checkpoint same as for everyone else.
