As a huge hockey fan i was in total shock, so many good players, and up and comers on that flight. Vasyunov was a great prospect for the Devils, Stefan Liv was a swedish living legend between the pipes and was one of my favorite international goaltenders, in fact i have a Liv Swedish national team jersey.
Tough summer for hockey, a very bittersweet one for myself... as a die hard B's fan i was more than thrilled that they won the cup, but it seems like after that everything went downhill (not that they're connected) it's just weird, Boogaard, Rypien, Belak and now the Lokomotiv team, absolutely terrible news...
Thoughts and prayers go out to the former teammates, families and friends of the fallen.
