What's going on is that the league wants Ovechkin in an outdoor game. NBC doesn't think the Caps draw well enough for the Winter Classic. If they do it in Canada, NBC can go bleep themselves, and pick up the feed if they feel like it.

It gives Canada another outdoor game, which they have wanted, and the league gets Ovechkin in an outdoor game and lots of exposure.
