For what it is worth, the guys on the KHL board are saying this is the best place for their roster: http://www.eliteprospects.com/player...r=8736&lang=en

Also to note that Jan Marek also died in the crash (if the entire roster was on board, which is debatable right now according to the KHL board). He was acquired from the Rangers a couple years ago, but never did sign or dress with the Kings. However, due to the lack of a Russia-NHL transfer agreement, he was still Kings property.

I hope the Kings wear a tribute patch to Demitra. I am still upset that he was traded for POS. He was always one of my favorites, a sad, sad day in hockey today and an awful summer for the hockey world.
The University of Marshal lost their college football team in a plane crash.
