Pavol Demitra is by far the biggest name on that team. Always loved watching that guy play, would tune into Blues games on Center Ice just to see him when he was in his prime.

EDIT: IF (big if) Wikipedia can be believed, this is the 9th crash of this type of plane out of 178 total built, which at 5% seems pretty high. Also wouldnt be the first takeoff crash.
