Hobnob's metaphor is horrible though. You have almost no chance of winning in a lottery. It's like drafting Crosby, Ovechkin, or Thornton before they played in the NHL. The risk you're taking is very minimal. They've had good careers and an off 48 game season will not totally negate their career value.
