My own roster, just added Seattle as the 32nd team. It was frustrating because I have no problem saving the game before the lottery and just loading it until I get a good lottery, but I accidentally saved the game because when you try to load a game it asks if you want to save it. I wasn't thinking and did it right after the lottery took place so I had to add a human GM and make a trade. Which is something I didn't really want to do, but unavoidable. Francis, no it did not. St. Louis (who did not make the playoffs) won the lottery using a pick acquired from the Washington Capitals who lost in the Eastern Conference finals. It seems like the bug of which BK is talking about and every single draft placement gets a lottery draw. The team who finished last was the Buffalo Sabres who did make the playoffs, but lost in the first round. Could this be just a one season thing or will it happen in every season?
