I don't know how many of you care about hockey stuff, but this is sad as hell.

Holy shit, that's horrible. Guess I know what everyone here will be talking about in the morning.

Shit, I watched Pavol Demitra play for the Cancuks for years.

And though I don't know about any other player, this is terrible.

I cannot find the story as-posted on NHL.com, but there was a statement issued by the KHL's president saying that he is speaking with the GMs of the various KHL clubs and asking for them to volunteer at least three players from their rosters to create a draft pool, so that the Lokomotiv club might rebuild itself in this time of tragedy and the spirit of the team be kept alive, and go forward in the season. Most of the club GMs agreed and supported the idea.

I think that is great, a little silver lining around a very large, very dark cloud.

Also: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=588056

A tribute ceremony was held by the team that the Lokomotiv were flying to play.

This was a terrible thing, and it resonates through the entire hockey community. A lot of players were lost, and a lot of players, coaches and staff in the NHL and many other national leagues had friends and colleagues among the departed.

Personally, I hope each of the team members who died were enjoying their life, so that I can think they died doing what they loved: playing hockey. Perhaps that is simplistic and childish, but I want it to be true, earnestly.

I don't know anything about hockey and I don't have a clue as to who they were, but this is sad because they were people.

The one surviving member of the team, Alexander Galimov, died from his injuries this morning in Moscow.

Ugh, it's like Fermun's Depressing Link thread is leaking.

I watch KHL games from time to time, as they are the best league outside of the NHL and if you feel like watching a hockey game at 3am on a weekend, it's late enough that their games have started. Salei was a great player who I loved watching during the seasons he was not in Detroit.

I'm sure to some this has become old news, hopefully it is at least not forgotten.

Love for Lokomitc is a website on which you can purchase a $10 bracelet. All ten of those dollars go to the families of those lost in the plane crash. I bought one myself last week at a hockey game, where the wives of my team's players were selling them in person.

I know there are a million causes to donate to, but here's another one!
