This is so horrible: At least 44 dead as plane carrying Russian ice-hockey team crashes (http://en.rian.ru/russia/20110907/166504776.html)

My deepest condolences to the families, friends, fans and everyone else who lost a loved one in this catastrophe.

According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Lokomotiv_Yaroslavl_plane_crash), one player and one member of the crew survived the plane crash. Player Alexander Galimov is reported to have severe injuries and that he has burnings on 80% of his body.

How horrible and heartbreaking. :(

Ex-NHLer Pavol Demitra is confirmed dead in the crash, as is coach Brad McCrimmon, who played for the Calgary Flames and last year was an assistant coach with the Detroit Red Wings.

My thoughts are with all of the families and friends.

How horrible! It's reminiscent of the USA FS team's plane crash in the early 1960's.

My deepest sympathies to the families.

ETA:

CNN does have this (I did not see it earlier)

German National Player Robert Dietrich is apparently also among the victims. It's so tragic: He had a contract with the German team Adler Mannheim until 2013 but left them after last season because he wanted to play in Russia so badly. It just breaks my heart.

ETA: It has been confirmed player Alexander Galimov died at the hospital :(

Oddly, CNN has no mention of this on their web site. This should have been a big news.

So sad! My condolences to all of the victims and their families.
