When I saw the news of the KHL plane crash this morning, I didn't want to do anything. I can't believe all of the tragedy that has befallen our favorite sport. It becomes extra depressing when one of your favorite players is among the dead this off-season. I've been watching Pavol Demitra highlights for the last 3 hours. St. Louis will miss you, Pavol.

No "other stuff" today. I'm not in a joking mood. There's not many Pavol Demitra videos as a Blue on YouTube, but here's what I could find. Feel free to post more highlights and memories in the comments.
Again, post some more Demitra photos/vids.
