All in my thoughts and prayers.
Working on going on an internship in Russia next year and am looking forward to visiting KHL teams... Yaroslavl might very well be one of the nearest. Big fan of Russian hockey.
If there was something I could do. Would be nice if the NHL added patches to the jerseys, and I would really want one of the patches as well.
Oh, how I will treasure my signed Demitra jersey now. (Thank you so much to who got me this... you'll know if you read this).
All the best wishes to everybody somehow involved. Survivor (praying). Family. Friends. Colleagues. Fans.
All you need.
I was shocked when I heard this, this is awful, 42 great people lost their lives today, R.I.P to all you !! And thank you for spending your life playing hockey to entertain us fans who complained when you didn't score !!! R.I.P Lomotikov ! We will miss all of you !!!
I would imagine that every single team in the NHL has a player or member of staff that knew or were friends with one of the victims of this tragedy. This is an event that will have touched so many people around the hockey world. The word tragedy is thrown around to easily in terms of sporting failures.
This is the one time where the word can be used correctly. This is an absolute tragedy. Condolences to all the families and friends of the victims.
OMG I can't believe this, just saw the list and remember players I've watched in the NHL, this has been an off-season to forget. Condolences to their families. Still can't believe...Demitra gone? Holy ****, speechless.
They allways say dont fly in russia.. probably for a reason. The pre-flight checks are too relaxed and they sometimes use old planes.
I cant even believe this is true, players like pavol demitra, one of my favourite, are now gone. They now truly are Legends, if living man can not be a legend. I still dont understand that a plane full of hockey stars can actually drop and get destroyed with no mercy.
This is sad day for all of us brothers who are in hockey in any way. Fan, player, what ever, it touches us all. Rest in peace..
Im still in shock and can understand what happend really. Its like Finland won the whc gold but opposite. Its so horrible that i cant even truly understand it. I know if any else plane had drop down, it would have been as devastating loss as this, i think all human lifes are equally important but still when lots of great players of hockey die this way all at once, i feel more shocked..
