Go back to the winter classic last year. It was the biggest game for the NHL in the US in years, they marketed the crud out of it. They forced both teams to make sure it went to a shootout , have a guy for each team score in the shootout to make it look like its not rigged. Then with the game on the line, in front of one of the biggest TV audiences for the NHL in years, you have your most marketed players come up with the game on line. BAM, he scores. Seriously, it like written by a hollywood writer. I though Michael Bay directed it all (then i realized there where no explosion. KABOOOMMMM)
So now the NHL forces MT to have crosby go last for dramatic reasons.
you know, now i realize Gary Bettman is in charge and he is not that smart, that is something David Stern would pull. IE the knicks winning the Ewning lottery
