they are reporting that it looks like the pilots were trying to land the plane into the river, but couldn't make it and the plan collapsed... the nose ended up in the river and the rear on the ground... just sounds horrible...

Wikipedia is already listing Brad McCrimmon and Ruslan Salei as deceased.

I've heard that the whole team + 4 players from youth team were in the plane... just horrible.

It's been confirmed by the Finnish media that Jorma wasn't on the plane.

Ah, good catch. I was going directly to their hockey page which had no mention of it.

Absolutely tragic...I am speechless, in awe.

My heart goes out to the families of everyone involved.

As a Wings fan it is even harder to swallow with McCrimmon, Salei and Liv on board.

What a tragic day.

Some unoffical source said that Alexander Galimov was the only player to survive. :(

I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news of the Marshall football team plane crash. This is bad. Devastating is an understatement and my thoughts are with family and friends of the deceased. Sad day for sports.
