Sad when a team is in a crash I do hope that there was no loss of life.

The plane, RA-42433, had been banned from service in Europe in 2009 because of safety issues. See

KauaiGolfer, that was the larger Yak-42 which is a trijet. It is large enough for a team and equip. Fingers are pointing to a possible fire on takeoff.

this should be lesson for all - never have all of your team mates fly in the same plane, it happened in Smolensk last year and now this - RIP to all

My thoughtd go out to the families of all.
Do not know what happened though I've read that the plane could not gain altitude after rotation, but I've always looked at the Yak-42 as a very slugish under powered A/C, even though it is a tri-motor. I hope they do find the cause quickly, and I do agree that this type should be retired

@Boyd : I guess you should read the article : " as the country mourned a crash that killed 43 people and devastated a top ice hockey team."

@Edward Vielmetti,
the plane involved was RA-42434, not 3 in the end.
