Speaking of Pasha, as we are, may we raise a glass to toast him on his birthday. Happy birthday to the most amazing hockey player to cross our paths in many a moon. We love ya, Pasha! :wub:

Sorry but this is not funny. I know what you are trying to say but what happened is still horrible and one can only pray, that the KHL has improved in that regard.

My comment was part jest - part serious...

It's pretty well known that Soviet era, and even modern Russian passeneger aircraft aren't exactly up to par with their N.American/European counterparts (pilots/air crew/ground crew qualities apply here as well).

Some years ago I read Harvard grad/American born hockey player Tod Hartje's experience playing for Sokol Kiev for 1 season back in 1990...His vivid descriptions of druken passengers rolling down the aisle while taking off, surly flight crews, and the "crudeness" of the aircraft themselves (in other words - they were lumps of crap with wings) made air travel "interesting" (if not downright frightening) to say the least.

Didn't mean to offend anyone with my comment.

This right here would be enough reason for me to stay out of that league.
