They have not confirmed who was on the plane and who wasn't.

From what Dmitry Chesnokov is speculating, the entire team might not been traveling.

Russian TV is still saying only 1, I hope the number keeps climbing though.

Has an image of the wreckage.

Obviously anything can happen in a crash, but it looks like it may have went down on its side...

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

Apparently from some articles I have been reading, it caught fire shortly after takeoff and then crashed not far from the runway.

I'm not sure what I'm seeing on TV. I see video of lots of rescue personnel speeding to the hospital. I hope it means that there is more than 1 crew member who survived.
