Bolts won't win the lottery

The kind of luck they've had this year, they won't win the lottery. Since 1995 only 3 last place teams have retained the number one pick. I bet Atlanta will get it, of course it has to be a division rival. That's how bad of luck the bolts have had this season.

Andreychuk

The Old Skool Assassin has mojo to spare.
