    It looks like Ruslan Salei has lost his battle and died. Former Rangers defender Alex Karpovstsev was the assistant coach and he was also on of the tragedy's victims. :(

    I thought the only 2 survivors are the Russian winger who had 80% of his body burned, and a flight attendant...any news on them? :(

    Sorry about that I mean Galimov, he came out of the crash in dire condition with over 80% of his body burned. Reports coming out say that he's passed but the doctors haven't made an official statement as far as I know.

    I don't remember the number, but usually when you go above 50% burns your chances of survival are very small. ******** this just blows.

    One of the Russian language online newspapers published a short video, supposedly of galimov being transferred from the ambulance to the hospital. he did not seem as having 80% burns. Possibly, it was the flight engineer and they just messed up on the identity?

    Anybody have any update on the two survivors? Last I heard was the player had to have a trachea transplant because he has respiratory burns. I've heard nothing about the crew member.

    That really sucks.

    This crash so far is kind of an anomaly. All three engines were working, there was no collision with an antenna mast (as was first reported), but it was not CFIT (controlled flight into terrain). The aircraft simply wasn't climbing. It have been meterological conditions, but the types of conditions that cause climbing struggles (low density altitude) occur in arid, usually hot climates (If you have ever flown from east of the Rockies to Las Vegas or Los Angles and noticed how much sharper and faster the decent in LV and LA are taken than you have experienced a pilot compensating for Density altitude)

    Also, you have to consider that while the turbofans were spinning, there may have been multiple ingestion (birds flying/being sucked into the engines), causing a critical loss of fan blades and thus engine power, but one would think the pilots would have noticed this right away, and the plane's alarm systems should have gone apeshit if that did occur, both of which happened aboard the USAir Airbus that was successfully landed in the Hudson River a few years back.

    Mikhail Grigorenko is moving to North America this season. He will play for Patrick Roy's Quebec Ramparts.

    Are you following the start of the KHL at all, RC? Hopefully Tarasenko survives the season and makes it to St. Louis next year.

    An odd choice of words, but no I don't really follow the KHL, other than to keep tabs on top prospects like Tarasenko or when a random game pops up on ESPN3.

    Alexander Radulov is demanding a trade from Salavat. Zinoviev likely wants out too.

    Wow. Does he want to stay in the KHL or come over to the NHL?

    Just remember, his NHL contract is for 800,000$ a year, and he can only play for Nashville.

    I seem to doubt he'd come back.

    If I'm not mistaken, Salavat have some major financial issues. I guess if he stays in the KHL he'd want a trade to one of the bigger teams like AK Bars Kazan or SKA Saint Petersburg.

    I'd personally like to see him come back to the NHL, though I realize it would be a little awkward given the Nashville situation. But I'm sure he's stock-piled plenty of cash over the past 3 years, won the KHL title last year, and basically posts the best offensive numbers in the league. Maybe it'd be nice to test himself against the NHL again while he's still in his prime.

    David Backes, American hockey hero, and also one of the best interviews I've ever read from a player. No wonder the guy is their captain.
