The Devils 727 did skitter off the runway once, or something like that.

I'm surprised the bodies can be ID'd already. Thought they'd have been charred.

Oh boy.
It was sad hearing about the tragedy, and it's still sad hearing about the procedure that needs to be followed afterward. News of his funeral will also be very sad.

It's already after midnight in Russia. I doubt there will be any updates soon.

Umm, yeah, 18 years isn't that old age for a plane if it's properly maintained. I was just replying to quincognito's question. And sure, licenses do expire, but I got the impression that the plane's license was expiring and not to be revalidated - And I might have got the wrong impression from the news sources.

And furthermore, the biggest problems of Russian aviation are constant neglecting of maintenance, disregarding safety instructions and using unqualified personnel.

One half of the plane fell into the water.

According to the latest news, Galimov has more than 80% of his body burned, several fractures and serious head injury. The other guy (only 15%) could be a pilot but there are so many rumours...if that`s true, ugh.

I heard the other guy was a flight engineer. They don't expect Galimov to survive with those burns, so the crewmember might end up being the only survivor.

I hope the Devils do something for Vasyunov. Possibly a patch and moment of silence for opening night.

It has been hard to focus. You get attached to these guys as their careers develop or your get attached to them and recall their legacies with fondness. This is just horrible. I feel so heart-sick today. I hope the NHL does something as a tribute. I would love it if maybe the Devils players could wear the names of their Lokomotiv counterparts for a game.

So sad. Everyone of them has a family, friends, fans...so many people are affected by this.

We all heard the same, I`m just posting what pops up from time to time. Almost no source is credible at the moment.

I saw on Twitter that Galimov passed away in the hospital.

I can't believe Vasyunov is gone. I was watching Sportscenter on break at work and I was reading the ticker. I saw Pavel Dimitra died and although it's very tragic, I didn't really think much of it - just a very sad accident. When I saw Vasyunov was on board as well, I was in complete shock.

I still think Vasyunov could have earned a top 6 role if he was willing to wait a few years. If he filled out, he could have been a 2nd line RW.

The fact his body was identified so fast means his body isn`t burned. Or at least not that much. That`s a "good news" I guess, you can`t think of worse cause of the death than burning alive.

Ranger fan who comes in peace: Alexander Vasyunov

Hello. I know we are mortal enemies but today is a sad day for the NHL and the KHL. Unfortunately today you lost a player in Alexander Vasyunov. I come in peace to tell you how sorry I am for you as a fan and your organization.

Maybe this thread could be used as a tribute thread to this young man who tragically lost his life today. Maybe stories you as fans have of him in his small stint with the Devils and maybe even youtube.com videos or video's you have. I know on the Rangers site we have a guy who does phenomenal video's of players. If you dont have a member on here that has that ability, I can ask him if he could come up with a tribute video for you Devils fans out there.

I am very sorry to hear of this tragic loss and today ALL NHL fans unite in the wake of such sadness this offseason. We lost so many people and today we lost a ton more. First was E.J., than Boogaard, then Rick Rypien, then Wade Belak and now Vasyunov, Karpovtsev, Demitra, Rachunek, and others.

So sad. REST IN PEACE EVERYONE, GodSpeed.

So maybe we can have this as a "remembrance" thread for the fans of the Devils.

Suggests killed on impact. Most likely would have burned if his part of the plane did not go into water.

The photo of the body in the stretcher appears unburned and shirtless, although it does look prone, which I thought was odd.

In a plane crash, generally the mostly likely causes of death are blunt force trauma, volumetric shock due to extensive burns, or smoke inhalation. Can't say for sure which one it is in this case.

I saw this on the Rangers board

I really hope that this isnt true, but I dont think it would be because its a fake account.

I remember being so happy seeing his player rating on NHL 09, than seeing him work his way up to our club. Always had high expectations for him and it was great seeing him on our ice.

I'll miss him very much, RIP Vas
