Flyers are home Underdogs to start the season
 
I guess Vegas didn't watch the playoffs last year?

Bryz is 4-1 against the Pens in his career, 2.08 GAA, .930 SV%.

I understand we're playing the 2 best players in the NHL, but I'd figure it would at least be something like -110, -110.

Well, the Penguins were make favorites to win the Cup by Vegas as well. Plus, it's not like the Flyers had a great off-season, and we won't have Briere in the lineup either.


It's one game.

Less goals against. :D

It's because the Pens have already won the Cup this season

Meh. I don't put too much stock into Vegas odds for any other sport besides football (and even there not too much).

I expect the Pens to struggle a bit this year (not that much, but I fear the Rangers more than them), personnally. Losing Staal will hurt them.

Staal is better than Sutter, but they made a great trade. It's not that far of a drop off, especially defensively. Sutter has the best on-ice GAA in the league since he's been in it, on a team that hasn't been good. The drop-off won't be felt nearly as much as people realize.

The Staal/Sutter trade will hurt the Pens the most if Crosby gets another virus
