I don't think he did it just for the Olympics. But I do feel he feels there's a good chance he can make a better case for himself in the KHL, where he knows he's a star, than he can in going to the NHL and possibly not being as successful.

Money, the lockout, family, wife, homesickness, and other issues are certainly at play. But to say it isn't the Olympics (which has been stated a few times in articles) at some portion of it, is short sighted.
