Habs being a lottery team imho isn't ''more likely''. ''Most likely'' in my opinion is Habs will be a middle of the pack team, which can mean anything from 10th place to 6th if there is the same kind of parity as previous years. A shorter season also makes it all more of an unpredictable crapshot, I'm sure you will agree.
A shorter season increases fluctuations, definitely. There is also the fact the schedule might not be cut down fairly, we could end up with an easier or harder schedule. We shall see.

My prediction was 11th to 15th place at high confidence, so I did not and do not think the lottery is a certainty.
