It has been a horrible summer for the hockey community. Prayers and thoughts to all the families.

I always think of these poor people, what it must be like during their last moments, what a horrible way to die! A good death is one thing but this is not how anybody should go.

R.I.P

Russia needs to hurry up and get those junk planes out of the air, I know they are in the process of doing it, but they are very unsafe now days.... this seems to be happening more and more with them

The worst part is they can very well build quality planes. The military Sukhoi and Mig fighter jets are amazing machines.

these planes though where piles of crap from the start, their designes where flawed, but they didn't seem to care
