Sadly, he is among those confirmed dead.

R.I.P. LOKO PLAYERS...TRIBUTE...http://www.youtube.c...h?v=emqug0_8AFU ....at 1.49 is the player that survived...Galimov, I hope he makes it

so many countries lost their palyers today...Czech's lost first line from last world cup, where they took gold

we lost some young talented players including Sobchenco andUruchev...they were part of the World Juniors team that won gold medal game against Canadians this year...

from what I have read here (Russia), Salei was on the plane...


btw the plane was charter V.I.P., this was not regularflight...the plane was not old like some of you said, manufactured in1994, believe it or not by aviation standard this is far from old...
also with regard to banned Russian jets, most russian jets are banned to due to higher noise levels as well as higher emission levels...does not mean they can't fly...




This video made me cringe! My father worked with Lokomotiv back home in Russia, and I've been a wings fan for years! Absolutely devastating....so many young lives lost...such a waste!

The video showing the plane taking off also made me cringe.

Apparently Joey MacDonald almost signed with Locomitv, but decided on the Wings offer instead. I'll bet he's glad he settled for a spot in GR


On Wednesday, about an hour after hearing about the crash, I was thinking about Joey because I knew he was certainly heading to the KHL before signing with the Wings at the last second. He may not necessarily have signed with Lokomotiv, but in some way, his life was saved.

My heart goes out to Brad McCrimmon's and Ruslan Salei's families, as well as all of the families of the other victims. May they find the peace and strength to survive the loss of their loved ones.

I just watched the funeral mass at the arena clip, and cried all the way through it. I couldn't watch it at work, as no one there would have understood why I was crying my eyes out.

This may be the saddest thing I've ever seen... so senseless and tragic. Rest in peace, all, you will be remembered.

Confirmed dead? I'm pretty sure everyone (excluding Galimov and the crew member) have already been confirmed dead. Or have the news not reach USA yet?

Silver lining with Joey Mac. He almost signed with Lokomotiv before getting his deal with the Wings.

What a tragic story this all is.

Reading the statement from Rusty's wife on Mlive was heartbreaking.

There was some speculation that he was not on the plane. I suppose because he was Belarussian and they were landing in Minsk. There was rumour that he had gone separately to visit early. Unfortunately, he was with the team.

Ryan Kennedy, Hockey News

This is a great, sensitive piece on the rebuilding of Locomotiv. Well done! I will be a fan, in my heart.

I wish they would just leave Dats alone. Everyday theres another interview with him. He is torn up; leave him to grieve in peace rather hash up his thoughts every 6 hours with the same questions.

Team prez says they will not play again this year. That would be tough for a fan as I'd think you'd want to try to carry on some semblance of normality, but IMHO its the right thing to do.

It is rather brave of him that he goes out and does what he has to do even though you know his heart isn't really in it. I hope when I see him next week in Traverse City that I can let him know how much we share his grief and his loss. That is, if I don't fall apart myself.

Eerily similar to the grim atmosphere at training camp 10 years ago, which started on 9/11.

I remember that.

I think it was late 2000.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I was hoping this would be the decision they would make. It's only right. And the true fans of the team will understand.

I am just at a loss for words...this is someone saying goodbye to Stefan Liv earlier today...(sorry, it won't embed)

Goodbye Stefan


And there was a good write-up on Liv the other day: here

Heres an excerpt:

Born Patryk Sliz in Gdynia, Poland, on Dec. 21, 1980, the future pro netminder was left at an orphanage in Gdansk by his teenaged birth mother, who realized she would be unable to properly care for the baby. At the age of 2, he was adopted by Swedish couple, Jens and Anita Liv, who traveled to Poland from their home in Norrahammar, Sweden (near Jonkoping) to receive the child. He took on the name Stefan David Patryk Liv.


I only wonder how things could have been if he had decided to tough it out in Grand Rapids....

YAROSLAVL, Russia—
They came by the tens of thousands to mourn, from world leaders to ice hockey stars to ordinary Russians, with flowers and tears and aching hearts.

An estimated 100,000 people flocked to a memorial ceremony Saturday in the western city of Yaroslavl for the victims of the Russian plane crash that devastated a top ice hockey team.

"For the first time in my life, I had trouble entering an ice arena," Vyacheslav Fetisov, a former NHL star who is chairman of the Kontinental Hockey League, said at the ceremony. "It's an inexplicable tragedy."

IDK if it was just me, but at Hockeyfest today Kindl still looked pretty upset. He looked very rough and weary, wasn't very talkative, and had to have smiles coaxed out of him. I felt so bad for him. :((((
Go rest high on that mountain, cause son your work on Earth is done. Go to Heaven a'shouting love for the Father and the Son. Ruslan Salei, Brad McCrimmon, Stefan Liv, Pavol Demitra, and the entire Lokomotiv team.
