Oh my god...this has been a horrific summer for hockey with deaths. RIP to all 43 people who died.

Along with Pavol Demitra (former Canuck) here are the former NHL players that died in the crash:

Ruslan Salei, who played for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Florida Panthers, Colorado Avalanche, and Detroit Red Wings.
Josef Vasicek, a Czech forward who spent the bulk of his career with the Carolina Hurricanes.
Karel Rachunek, who played for the Ottawa Senators, New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils.
Karlis Skrastins, a defenceman from Latvia who played mainly for the Nashville Predators and Colorado Avalanche.
Alexander Vasyunov, a Russian forward who spent 18 games with the New Jersey Devils last season.

A lot of good former NHL guys. Sad to hear. Sounds like the KHL was getting them some shitty planes. They will lose a lot of players over this.

What happens to the team now? Do they fold or do they continue? What a horrible accident. Could set the league back years and the team itself back decades.
