A jarring thought that four guys on the mid 80s team are now dead. That is inconceivable. A fun team to watch.

Reports stated a player survived but was burned over 80% of his body, and just recently reports say he has died in the hospital, or is expected to die from his injuries.

This summer has been ****ing terrible

Obviously the former NHLers hurt a bit more because of name recognition (and Demitra was quite active on twitter, so it almost feels a little more personal), but such a loss of human life is just unspeakable.

Thoughts and prayers to their families

This is awful. What is going on in the hockey world?

This has got to be the worst tragedy in the history of the sport.

I really don't know what to say.

****ing hell, can't someone hit the reset button so we can re-do this summer and get it right this time. Far, far too many tragedies has happened, not just related to hockey but overall.

Stefan Liv was on that plane, a member of Sweden's olympic gold medal team in Turin 2006 and generally all around great guy. One of the best charachters in the game.

From Rick Tocchet:


“I talked to him four or five times last month. He had left Detroit and told me it was a good deal for him a chance to make some money and go coach. Brad is a really good coach. This has been such a bad summer for hockey, every day, the deaths, everything else, [Sidney] Crosby’s situation.”

I think I can be we have all thought about this before, especially even now:


Quote:
It’s horrible to consider — a plane crash wipes out an entire NHL team — but the league has thought about it nonetheless.

That’s why the league requires teams to have a $1-million (all figures US) insurance policy on each player, one of the provisos in the NHL bylaws made public over the weekend in court filings regarding the bankruptcy of the Phoenix Coyotes.

If a team is left with fewer than 14 players and one goaltender following some sort of catastrophe, the league sets in motion its Emergency Rehabilitation Plan.

First, the “disabled team” would be allowed to negotiate to buy players under contract from other teams, with payment coming from the insurance money.

If that didn’t fill out the roster, a draft would be held, much like an expansion draft. Teams could protect 10 players and one goalie.

The disabled team would be allowed to take no more than one player from each of the other teams. The price for each player is $1 million in insurance money.

I know large families that stagger their flights when they travel so that if a black swan disaster occurs the whole family isn't wiped out. Maybe teams that fly charter should do the same if they don't already despite it being cost prohibitive given the odds of such a catastrophe happening....

I go to Marshall University, and after our catastrophe in 1970, I thought this was the case, that they separated the team into 2-3 planes. (until recently, of course)

I wonder if this will force change in the sports world when it comes to traveling. I also wonder if this will cause players to hesitate climbing onto a plane now.

This could have a widespread effect. The whole tragedy is just mind-numbing

You think this is the first time this has ever happened? Planes are still statistically safer than any other form of transport. It wont change anything.

RT @SlavaMalamud: The crashed plane was forbidden to use the European Union airspace, deemed too unsafe by the European Air Safety Commission.
