NHL Prop Odds: Flames, Senators

Hockey bettors don't expect to see the Calgary Flames near the top of any NHL betting boards this year, but they are getting plenty of early attention for all the wrong reasons.

The decimated Flames are expected to be the league's worst team and online sportsbook Bovada made them the favorite to finish last overall (-140).

There are also odds posted today on the first day of the 2013-2014 NHL season on whether GM Jay Feaster and coach Bob Hartley will be fired this year.  In both cases, the 'yes' answer is the favorite position.

Bovada also continued to poke at the Vancouver Canucks' goalie situation, which was finally resolved with the trade of Cory Schneider to New Jersey. They introduced a friendly competition between the former teammates, making Roberto Luongo the underdog to have a better save percentage this year.

They did the same thing with the controversy surrounding Daniel Alfredsson's exit from Ottawa. There are odds on whether Alfredsson or new Senators forward Bobby Ryan will get more points, with the latter favored.

Philadelphia Flyers fans should be nervous that their coach is favored to be the first coach fired this year. And rookie blueliner Seth Jones is the early favorite to win Rookie of the Year honors.
