Actual Odds on Saku Koivu's return

Sometimes you just can't make comedy up...sometimes you have to find it in unexpected places...sometimes you have to wait for someone to tell you that something is funny....and that is what happened today.

Credit Matthew Ross, Radio Host on Game Points on the Team 990 (Sundays 6pm-8pm and Tuesdays 11pm-1am, also home of the Tweet Ten) for sending me this info.

You know that people these days will bet on anything. From the color of the post-game Gatorade dump to how many goals Martin Brodeur will let in within a 5 minute rock is left overturned.

Leave it to to make up some odds on the return of Saku Koivu tonight. Take a look at the lines below.

Will Saku Koivu (ANA) score a goal?
Yes +325 ( or 13/4)
No -450 ( or 2/9)

Will Saku Koivu (ANA) record a point?
Yes +140 (or 7/5)
No -170 (or 10/17)

Will Saku Koivu (ANA) be the first star of the Game?
Yes -150 (or 2/3)
No +110 (or 11/10)

What this is saying is that in their opinion Saku Koivu is favored to be the First Star of the game, but not favored at all to record a point in it.

Only in Montreal.

Go Habs Go.

Welcome back Saku.
