Monday, Bodog released the Vegas odds on the NHL’s year-end awards, with heavy favorites for every award.  The most prohibitive favorite is Phoenix Coyotes coach Dave Tippett at 1/9 to win the Jack Adams Award for Top Head Coach, but every favorite would pay out less than what you wager. Perhaps most bizarre is Penguins star Sidney Crosby riding his winter exhibition glory to being a 2/3 favorite to get the Hart Memorial Trophy for League MVP, with Capitals superstar Alexander Ovechkin only a close second at 5/4.

The second largest favorite is Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, a 1/5 lock to win the Vezina Trophy for Top Goaltender. Old fossil Martin Brodeur is Miller’s closest competition at 5/2.

The most competitive award by the odds is the James Norris Memorial Trophy for Top Defenseman. Drew Doughty of the Kings is the 1/2 favorite, but Duncan Keith of the Stanley Cup-champion Chicago Blackhawks at 11/4 and Washington’s Mike Green at 3/1 are not far behind.

The Frank J. Selke Trophy for Top Defensive Forward also presents a tight race, with Pavel Datsyuk of the Red Wings the 1/2 favorite ahead of Pittsburgh’s Jordan Staal (7/4) and Ryan Kesler of the Vancouver Canucks (9/2).
