The tragedy in Russia that saw all the members of KHL team Lokomotiv Yaroslavl perish in a plane crash and leaving just one survivor from the flight has been one of the hardest stories for hockey fans around the world to face up to. From all the former NHL players who died in the crash to all the Russian professionals who lost their lives in the tragedy, it’s been a story that’s affected everyone.
Pierre McGuire, who coached Lokomotiv head coach Brad McCrimmon while with the Hartford Whalers, talked with NBC Sports Talk’s Russ Thaler to discuss what the effects of that tragedy could be on the KHL and to the psyche of all players who make a living hopping planes to travel city to city.
