OT: Russian hockey team dies in plane crash

13

The plane carrying the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team, one of Russia's top teams with several ex-NHL players, crashed in Minsk with 43 dead out of 45 aboard. This is an awful tragedy, of course. Lesson: Never get in a Soviet-built airplane. The question that came to mind is: what do we do when this happens in America, which it eventually will? College teams, like Marshall, have been wiped out before, but never a pro team. I read somewhere that MLB policy is to conduct an emergency expansion draft, in order to restock the club involved, and continue the season. I don't know how true that is.
