I knew he would honor the victims. He’s Russian and every russian knows icehockey. Maybe he lost his concentration at monza because of this.
@bleu: Yeah, feels horrible doesn’t it? when a whole team of the sport you love is whiped out… Sadly enough, some things you don’t have in hand. Lets hope this doesn’t happen again in any sport, cause it could’ve happend to F1 drivers too. Like Colin Mcray, he died after a helicrash.
Luckely, the president of Russia decided to check the airtraffic more from now on. Hopefully every country in the world does the same thing. Cause whoever is on a plane, I don’t wish this to anyone…
And bleu: You should check NHL.com. Stands full of comments of players. Datsyuk and Oveshkin gave an interview too. And actually, I’m FURIOUS about the interviewer of datsyuk: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=587971&navid=DL|NHL|home
“When asked his thoughts for the upcoming season and how the team will rebound following consecutive second-round playoff losses to the San Jose Sharks, the usual jovial Datsyuk shook his head.
“Are we talking about hockey now?” he asked. “I’m sorry. My mind is different now. It goes much deeper than that. I have no idea what’s going on in hockey … not now. It’s really hard. I still can’t believe it. I was waiting to the last minute to find out if (defenseman) Ruslan Salei was on the plane.”
Of course datsyuk is still in shock, what did you expect?
