Love that video!! ^^

Found this article a couple months ago. It gives a lot of detail about a couple of the players a coaches. It also gives a lot of detail about the crash and rescue. A lot of detail. There were things that I'd rather not have known. DO NOT read it if you're sensitive to that stuff.

There's also this from Puck Daddy a few days ago

And this was posted in another thread a few weeks ago. Salei's National team retires his jersey.

Really don't want to bring up this tragic event, but I found this episode of Air Crash Investigations that covers the Lokomotiv tragedy...thought maybe some of you would like to watch the episode...again, RIP Lokomotiv...

Thanks for this, was an interesting watch. Still devastating to remember this. I hope the families are finding some peace somehow.

That is so creepy and horrifying to watch. I didn't think it was possible for an airline to be run THAT poorly. Sad

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

GAH!  Blocked in my region :(

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

That video was very enlightening, thank you for posting!!

"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Still remember the nauseous feeling upon hearing the news.
