Russian Hockey Team Killed In Plane Crash

Recommended Posts

I got chills down my spine after learning about this.

The name that i recognize most is Alexander Karpovtsev.

Pavol Demitra and Igor Korolev are a couple more.

 

One guy who survived(Alexander Galimov) has burns on 80% of his body.

He is one of only two survivors. Russia has one of the worst air traffic

safety records in the world.

Yeah Pavol Demitra, Karlis Skrastins and Ruslan Salei as well... Saw all of those guys play for years in the NHL...

What a terrible tragedy. May their souls rest in peace. As much as I hate the Boston Red Sox, I don't wish death nor something terrible like this happen to anyone at all.

Very sad story. Reminds me of the Thurman Munson and Marshall University(basis for movie "we are marshall) tragic crashes as well.

 

I also echo my consdolances and the players/others on that flight RIP.:cry:

This was extremely sad.

 

Demitra was one of my favorite players...Salei and Skrastins were very celebrated in their home countries. Karpovtsev, Rachunek of course I always have a soft spot for those who were NY Rangers... McCrimmon a very sad story too, a new head coach excited to finally get the job and never coached his first game... Ex NHL Player Igor Korolev also... And some of those Russian kids were very young, way too young to go out in a tragedy like this... Many of these guys had families with very young kids...

 

Best wishes to all of their friends and families.
