Zdeno Chara, Tim Thomas Among Bodog Favorites to Take Home Norris, Vezina Trophies Forget the Stanley Cup; will Tim Thomas be able to repeat as a Vezina Trophy winner?

Questions like that are what make Las Vegas go, and the world of online gambling is no different. The online betting site Bodog has preseason odds on individual player prop bets and a couple of Bruins players are near the top of the favorites to bring home some hardware this season, according to ProHockeyTalk.

Thomas is listed as a 7-1 bet to defend his Vezina Trophy, coming in second behind Buffalo Sabres netminder Ryan Miller, who is a 5-1 favorite. Canucks goalie and Stanley Cup Finals loser Roberto Luongo has the third-best odds to win at 15-2.

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara is listed at 9-2 to win Norris Trophy for best defenseman, second only to Nashville Predators blueliner Shea Webber at 4-1. Defending Norris winner Nicklas Lindstrom is listed just behind Chara with 13-2 odds.

Elsewhere, Alexander Ovechkin is the favorite to win the league's Hart Trophy as MVP and the Ross Trophy for leading scorer, while Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning has the best odds to win the Richard Trophy for most goals.
