Christmas is coming Soon, but in contemplative mood on the crisis-ridden ZSC Lions . Two games are still up to the Feast, and soon, a major decision has to be made: namely, whether one wants to play the season with Coach Serge Aubin finished or not. In the last few weeks, the principle ruled hope. Again and again we hoped that it would get better. Recently, after a positive week of training. But then it stood on Tuesday at the indoor stadium against Ambri after seven minutes already 0:2.
It is not so, that the team against the coach would play. She has enough to fight with yourself. But the French Canadians is their also not a big help. Aubin does his Job to the best of our Knowledge and belief, he is not a bad coach. But he has not found in Zurich, the wire to the players properly. The 43-Year-old was as a player, a model professional, never had to drive, went through the fire. He had 20 Aubins in the team, the ZSC Lions would be at the top. But he didn't.
The Trainer is not the main problem of the ZSC Lions, it is the team, the absence of the leader figures and contentment has settled in. It is significant that Kevin Klein, who wanted to withdraw, was persuaded to play, because it is used as a management personality. Sports chief Sven Leuenberger stepped in last year to change the culture. But he remained stuck halfway down. The championship title in the spring, so he was nice, has a lot of glossed over. You will need to consider, nevertheless a lot, said CEO Peter Zahner at that time. It seems to avail nothing.
In Zurich, his old love, would Del Curto determined to compete again with fresh vigor.
And the title was for Aubin's the worst possible starting point, to take on the ZSC Lions. The success that came to be without him, seems to have the young trainer confused. Perhaps the experience of missing him still, with such a difficult situation to deal with. In any case, it does not occur so far as the personality, as you have obliged him. He can't make it right to emancipate themselves from the sports chief, who interprets his Job. What is Aubin, it is not yet clear. So it is no wonder that in his team there is no clear line and no development.
That Aubin goes after weak performances rare in the wardrobe, because he wants to say in the emotions nothing wrong to the players, is probably indicative. Marc Crawford did not make such Considerations. If he was dissatisfied, he created his Anger. It should have begun to tremble walls, it is called. It may wear off, if you will. Yet Crawford held on for four years in the case of the ZSC Lions – so long as before and after him none. Of course, it helps if you like him or Bob Hartley, a Stanley Cup victory in the Palmarès, in order to be credible.
Aubins predecessor Hans Kossmann, who came in the Christmas break of 2017 and became the champion, wasn't successful because he looked to the right and to the left. He had nothing to lose, because he knew that he must go by the end of the season anyway would be – and drew his line. Now ask yourself: Can Aubin to sharpen its profile in Zurich with his back to the wall? The players believe that he can lead you to success? Believes it is also the club's leadership? Or the damage is already done?
How good is the Zurich to play, if you are in full swing, saw one in the spring in the Playoff.
In the case of the ZSC Lions you wait for the time being and hopes to continue. However, much suggests that Aubin can still force a miraculous turnaround. The Problem is that it is in the case of the ZSC Lions, in principle, the incorrect character is to always replace the Trainer, if there is a crisis looming. It would be time that the Team stands together and on their own bootstraps. As well, the Zurich can play, if you are in full swing, saw one in the spring in the Playoff. But if it goes against you, if you are not able to create the turn. Because it shows that you have more personalities would be good.
it is Obvious that you need an experienced coach, with clear ideas from the ice hockey and also with a heavy Hand can lead, if necessary. Since one inevitably comes to the name of Arno Del Curto, who resigned at the end of November after over 22 years with HC Davos. In the past there were already several Attempts to pilot the Engadin back to the ZSC, where he had provided in 1992, with the victory over the "grande Lugano" for a star hour. But Del Curto always declined. Now he is probably two years too long at Jacob's horn remained. Last had worn since his relationship to the players.
In Zurich, his old love, would take Del Curto, however, is determined again with fresh vigor. In the ZSC organization, it is doubted whether the Engadine would fit into the organization chart. However, it could be for him liberating, if he could focus only on his Job as a coach. Success guarantees in sports no. But one thing is for sure: Del Curto would provide for emotions. And the can use the ZSC Lions urgently. Not only the ZSC-cabin would quake, the whole indoor stadium.
