I read there were 178 of them total, 8 being involved in crashed.

Today. Sucks.

Thanks. I read over 500 people have died while on this plane model.

Tretiak just spoke and stated the Soviet National Team will no longer use Yak-42s.

You Think? Terrible that it took something like this to make Russian hockey teams put a little money/effort into ensuring their teams can travel safely

:butbut: :crybaby:

I am in tears, here... no one in my office would understand why... what a terrible tragedy. Is there no end to the grief and sadness this summer?

RIP, Rusty and Pavol and Brad... I am so sad. :(

Where did you hear this?


Belarus Hockey Federation stated Salei was with team in Yaroslavl and they have been in contact with relatives and have no good news to report. I'll try to find a source, I don't remember where I saw it.

This is the crappiest offseason ever I am honestly sick to my stomach now, and not knowing for sure if Salei died is just really making this even tougher. :(

NHL Network has stated that Rusty was on the flight. This is too much.

I don't even have the words to describe how distraught and saddened I am by this. I can't remember an off-season for any sport I follow being as horrible as this one was re: death. This season can't start fast enough.

I have to stop looking at this, I have to work, and I am bawling my eyes out here. Rest in peace, gentlemen. This was not the fate you deserved.

Bless them all, and their families...

Apparently the planes were being decommissioned in Russia less than a month from now (Oct. 1), which is two years after the EU deemed then unsafe.

Russian media (tv) has stated that Salei was on the plane and the plane crashed because it was over the weight limit. Whoever "checks" these planes before take-off ought to be better trained. Don't most of airplane accidents occur at take off and landing and most could have been prevented...

Worst offseason in hockey history... RIP to McCrimmon, Salei, Demitra, and all the other players who needlessly lost their lives because of some malfunction or stupid mistake..

Rest in Peace Rusty and Brad and all of those on board. Such a horrible tragedy on a horrible scale.


I was supposed to do a ton of work all day, but I don't think I have it in me anymore. Can't stop thinking about this.

My thoughts go out to all of the families and friends of those involved. Can't even imagine how horrible it must be.

I think a worse fate ought to face this person if the plane was overweight and deemed OK to travel.

Unbelievable. Just unbelievable. This world is so cold. My thoughts and prayers out to all families affected.

My day was alright until I got out of class and read this. Holy s***. I don't even know what else to say.
