What a terrible off season for hockey - first Boogaard, Rypien, Belak, now this?  Lotta NHLers on that plane - Pavol Demitra was great here in St Louis.

Numbers differ in Russian news... But one crew member and one player survived... With 80% burns :(

The plane could not accelerate fast enough, passed the take-off line but still the pilot decided to take off.. Didn't make to 200m altitude, hit trees/wires/radio tower and crashed.

The last player died from burns in hospital.

Edit: It was told in news here in Latvia and in Russia... But just dug in forums that he is still alive...


Anyway... Major loss for hockey world
