Re: Plane Crash Kills Top Russian Hockey Team

As a massive hockey fan, I was absolutly sad when I heard the news. Lokomotiv Yaroslavl were a top team. As Safir mentioned so many familiar names have died, including the Swedish goalkeeper Liv. Only two survivers, one player Galimov has 90% burns on his body. Summer 2011 has been terrible a terrible time for hockey, first the deaths of Boogaard, Rypien and Belak and now this.

Russia seriosuly need to get their aviation sorted out. They've got a poor record (A notable death was last year when the Polish president died).

R.I.P to the deceased and my thought are with their loved ones. I hope Lokomotiv Yaroslavl will pick themselves up from this and continue to do well.
