Speaking of deaths: Pavol Demitra, Ruslan Salei, Josef Vasicek, Maxim Shuvalov, Jan Marek, Karlis Skrastinsh... all killed in a Russian plane crash today. These are the few I heard about. Might be more. RIP guys.
My condolences to the families of all affected. We had the pleasure of seeing Skrasish and Salei play here in CO. I always liked the two of them. Maybe we can get to the start of the regular season without anyone else dying?
