I think it was after the Alexandre Daigle controversy where Ottawa was accused of tanking to finish behind San Jose that the lottery came to pass. (Certainly memories of Lemieux were prevalent as well)

Somewhere I have a book that documents the evidence against the Pens, which as posted above, did include dressing a goalie of very, very suspect credentials. If I can find it, I'll post the details here.
