From The Athletic:

That 2018 pick turned out to be fourth overall and the Sens just flat out got greedy – and used it to land Brady Tkachuk. A lot of people believe Tkachuk is going to be a very good NHLer. If he’s anything like his older brother Matthew, who plays for Calgary, he will be a presence on the ice and in the dressing room. I get the attraction of landing a player of Tkachuk’s pedigree and character. But please. In the midst of this massive public rebuild, now the Senators don’t have their own first-round pick in 2019, which could easily be first overall.

If they had passed on Tkachuk and hung on to the pick, then at least they could have sold hope for the next nine troubling difficult months, in which their fan base is sure to take a massive hit. Had they hung on to their first-round selection in 2019, then with every passing loss this season, Sens fans could have consoled themselves with the knowledge that they might be creeping one step closer to Jack Hughes, the consensus top player in the 2019 draft, and someone who projects as a cornerstone player – which, by the way, every successful rebuild requires.

A lot people say that the Sens' pick will win Hughes but the Lotto winners aren't who you'd expect and the Sens' pick will have 52% (over half) chance of being 4th.

Which is likely, and if they don't finish last, the chances of them winning the lotto is even lower.

THat's what i'm saying. So they have a less than 18.5% chance at picking 1st.

Edit: That's*
And i meant that pick has a less than 18.5% chance of winning the lottery. Because Ottawa wouldn't be picking 1st with that pick, they don't have it anymore.
