late On Tuesday evening had a Clement Jodoin as a person who takes leave of a life. The coach of the polar bears looked attacked. This guy is a man apologized with a shaky voice, all employees of the Berliner hockey club for a short time before suffered a fourth home defeat in a row. The 2:5 against Nürnberg was the 29. Game of Jodoin as head coach of the polar bears, who have slipped back down after this Bust in ninth place in the table. And it was the last game of Jodoin as coach in Berlin. On Wednesday night the club announced that the parting of ways. Sports Director Stéphane Richer will step in as interim coach, the assistant coach Steffen Ziesche and Gerry Fleming.
General Manager Peter John Lee said Wednesday night the daily mirror: "We did not want to decide on Tuesday in an emotional Situation. Today we talked a lot, especially with our Chairman of the Board Luc Robitaille in Los Angeles. He takes part in the decision.“ How long Richer to get behind the gang, was not yet clear. You'll decide after the next Play, said Lee. "So, most recently with the home defeats, it is not just went."
The polar bears have finished with the resignation of Jodoin's a misunderstanding that will cost you possibly a good season. That the one who carried Jodoin from the Co - head coach, will now coach the team, but it is a bit strange. Well, you don't know this constellation from the Sport, for example, from Ralf Rangnick at the Bundesliga club RB Leipzig, or of Richer self, stood in Hamburg from time to time as a Co-Trainer when it ran.
Jodoin applies not only to the guilt
on Friday, the polar bears have their next home game against Augsburg – a fifth defeat in a row might exhaust the patience of the Berlin audience. Of the polar bears, the Fans can expect to due to their glorious past, with seven championship titles, more than they have recently shown. That, however, Jodoin applies solely to blame for the misery is not right. Taking it to the authority of the 66-year-old canadian on the Team is probably not too good was ordered, but this came with the failure.
In the case of this topic, the causes of research also Richer: The sports Director has not would be the team before the season, so strengthened, as it has been necessary and apparently miscalculated what was the condition of his alleged leadership of players such as Micki DuPont and André Rankel. Because they are getting on in years and no longer at the peak of their powers.
Also went to the preseason with Petri is a world-Vehanen class goalkeeper who saved the team "in almost every second game in the ass", as Jodoins predecessor Uwe Krupp once in a noisy Minute said. The hastily after the start of the season brought Canadians Kevin Poulin is not the presence of Vehanen. Against Nuremberg, he zerdepperte after three early goals, the bat, and changed himself – as a goalkeeper, not with tears the team.
That is Richer in the personnel policy was wrong, was in his time with the Hamburg Freezers. The Team also came up with him never made it past the quarter-finals in the German ice hockey-League – six years he was coach, athletic Director and assistant coach. To the Freezers in 2016 have been completed by owner Philip Anschutz. It will be exciting for the polar bears, the tensions are likely to be discharged with the coach dismissal is hardly behind the Scenes.
the lake house
Clement Jodoin, however, it should be good to go. The coach had the last warm anyway from his home in Canada to weld, which is located on a beautiful lake. Because Jodoin can now enjoy his retirement, or just wait to see if a good offer comes in: the head coach of the man was not fond of, the office of the assistant was more to him. Also in the case of the polar bear, which he leaves after a total of one and a half years.
