Cause people wants to believe it cause it would make them feel better to believe that he's done.
No. Like DD56 pointed out, there's signs that point to him having physical issues that are affecting his play...not to the point of being finished, but definitely enough that he's probably not Kovy anymore. As has been pointed out, for a guy who was considered to have top (but flawed) world talent, his KHL numbers really aren't very impressive at all...at the very least, he is not the offensive force he once was.
He was smart to do what he did...he found a league where he could still make a boatload of money, play in 30 less regular season games a year, not have to deal with the grind of an NHL season (which was going to be even harder on him this season, with the compressed schedule) and go somewhere that's truly home to him.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
