Fresh Links: Remembering Lokomotiv Edition

Pavol Demitra, a former NHL player, died when a plane carrying the KHL's Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team crashed after taking off near the city of Yaraslavl in Russia.

One year ago today, the hockey world was rocked by a horrible tragedy - the loss of an entire KHL team in a plane crash. Today, take a minute and remember the likes of Pavol Demitra, Brad McCrimmon, and Ruslan Salei - all of whom, in addition to dozens of others, had their lives cut short.

It's weird, the Lokomotiv crash will always be one of the events where I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news. Anyone else feel that way?

In other news, there...isn't really much other news. Peter Chiarelli talks about how he's happy with his goalies, the Maple Leafs suck, and the Shane Doan saga is never going to end...
