    Nothing more I can add about the horror of this.

    Condolences for family, friends and loved ones - may all the departed rest in peace - and healing thoughts for those injured.

    My condolences and prayers go out to the vitims and their loved ones and special vibes go out to the two still in hospital. Terrible news. Apparently the team had players with ten different nationalities on their team including their coach who was Canadian. R.I.P.

    How unbelievably sad and tragic - my sincerest condolences to all of the friends and families of the crash victims, as well as the 10 nations whose countrymen were players or coaches on the team .

    I can't help but have the same feelings about skaters, coaches, officials, managers, and family members of the 1961 United States figure skating team who were killed in the crash of Sabena Flight 548 on the way to the World Championships that year

    This one really hits home:

    Two of those killed in the crash (Brad McCrimmon- team coach, and Igor Korolev- assistant coach) once played for the Phoenix Coyotes (1996-1997) which is the NHL team here in Phoenix. Korolev also played for the Phoenix Roadrunners, a non-NHL team in Phoenix.

    Here is the article in our local newspaper (The Arizona Republic):

    I feel like I've been slugged in the gut.

    As a Calgary Flames fan, I watched Brad for many years, so this hits hard.

    What an awful lot of loss those of us in the Hockey Community, both those in the game and us fans, have had this Off Season. This though...What a horrible, horrible loss.

    My Condolences to the Families and Friends. May they all Rest In Peace.

    4 of those killed played on the Grand Rapids Michigan Griffins semi-pro hockey team. And was mentioned upthread their coach Brad McCrimmon was Detroit Red Wings assistant coach last season. Just

    How awful for them and their loved ones. Too terrible for words.

    There have been way too many tragedies in the hockey community lately.

    Brad McCrimmon was an assistant coach for the Wings too. Here's an article about Red wing head coach Babcock's visiting his family. Heartbreaking.

    The hockey world really is a small world. Such a tragedy. So many lives touched.

    Terrible, scary loss.

    "Wiped out" is a little tacky, no?

    Just read on a few German news sites that players from other KHL clubs have expressed their wishes to play for Lokomotiv now.
    It's amazing how much they are willing to show their support after this horrible tragedy.
