It's not that low. I mean, the lowest total point team is only at 18% chance of winning. I think 2nd is something around 13%. Regardless, last place has a near 50% chance of moving all the way down to 4th.

However it's quite possible that something isn't working right if you've ran it that many times. We'll make sure to look into it.

(For anyone else interested on approximate lottery odds, here's a few years old article - but I'm 95% sure the odds haven't changed - https://www.nhl.com/flames/news/nhl-...-odds/c-879417 )
