Early speculation is that poor quality fuel contributed to this crash:

Sounds like cheap fuel may have been used and caused the engines to fail in their ability to reach a safe rotation (takeoff) speed.

You could not pay me enough to fly in Russia.

Just logged on here to pay my respects to Rusty and McCrimmon. Not many things can express the tragic nature to this whole thing, but thanks for everything Rusty and Brad..... Wings in our hearts forever.

RIP Ruslan Salei and Byron Brad McCrimmon
TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN, MUCH IS EXPECTED.

I don't want to read about this anymore, as it makes me sick just thinking about it, but I can't stop checking in here, reading the comments from players, coaches, etc around the hockey world... it's amazing how many lives were touched and subsequently devastated by the men on that plane and I can't help but get angry at a tragedy that could have and SHOULD have been prevented... the loss is too much...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Thanks, just made it this afternoon. I am also working on a few other variations.

Also, reports are coming in that Galimov is able to talk and has cognitive ability. His condition appears stabilized for the time being. At least a little bit of positivity today.

Not sure if this has been shared, but here's a nice piece on Kindl's relationship with Salei

QFT

Russia is one of the world's leading producers of oil, there is no reason any Russian plane should ever have inferior fuel put in it. If I were a fan of the KHL, I would refuse to spend any money or watch any games until that league got it's priorities in order.

A team will be created using players off of other KHL rosters and will play in yaroslavl. The salary for players will still be paid by the original team (not Locomotiv). Not sure how I feel about this. It's a nice gesture by the other teams and players, but it's only been a day since the accident.

I've been reading that apparently Alexander Galimov is conscious and talking.

It's entirely in Russian, and it's 34 minutes long. I cried through the whole thing.

Reading about Kindl and his relationship with Ruslan was tough. In a way, Salei was that father figure for Kindl this past season. I think Salei was a great hockey player, but from what I've heard he was an even better family man. I just feel so sad knowing he just had a child who will never get to meet him.
Playoff Time. Let's Go Red Wings!!!!

Found this on nhl.com...

"When asked what needs to be done in order to move forward from Wednesday's tragedy...Datsyuk looked at his inquisitor with a blank stare and said, "pray".

There is more in the article...if you want to read it, it's at nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=587971

I have a feeling it will be taken out of circulation for a while like Vladdy's is

I saw part of that from the clip posted earlier, and it got to me. I tried to watch your link with the whole ceremony, but only made it to just after 5:40 with the pause and close up, and got choked up. I'm out. I need a beer...

The Ducks should at least consider taking it out of circulation. I know he didn't play with them last, but he's the franchise leader in games played for a defenseman. He was more closely a part of that franchise and community than any other.

I really don't have words to describe this or my feelings at the moment. But here is a little something I whipped up. You can tell where my original inspiration came from. (You'll have to forgive me, for some reason it won't let me post the picture, so I linked it.)

I have another version that I like a little more, again for some reason Im unable to have the graphic show on here so I will once again provide a link. I welcome any comments or ideas!
