Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of the plane crash that killed 36 members of the Russian hockey club Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, including former NHLers Ruslan Salei, Kārlis Skrastiņš, and Pavol Demitra. Today Russian officials announced that they were charging Vadim Timofeyev, the deputy head of the Yak-Service airline, with breaching air safety rules after an investigation revealed that neither of the two pilots of that plane should have been flying. A previous investigation found that the plane's brakes had been accidentally applied during take off.
