With all the Power to the Eight of us wanted to storm the polar bears this season to the title in the German hockey League (DEL). After the defeat in the sixth quarter-finals at RB in Munich on Friday evening of this target is missed permanently. The Power was ultimately with the people of Berlin. Scary seven-time DEL Champion is not got in the past few months. The district finalaus is only logical. More would have been earned after some dismal performances in the main round, but at least the team through their performances in the Play has Robert-offs a little bit of credit back.
Now the polar bears have to draw the right conclusions from this disappointing season. It would be dangerous, and lead to many injuries as the sole cause for the Failure, because the reasons go much deeper. Without the Need of the club went with a new head coach in the season because it had failed to meet the bosses, to extend in time with Uwe Krupp. The assessment of Krupp's assistant Clement Jodoin would have it already set up proved to be fatal. What is even more amazing, because Jodoin had already been a year in the club. There are a lot of players at the club who have passed their Power peak. Former executives are still hanger-on, a functioning hierarchy in the Team was evident until the last from the outside.
minimal course corrections are no longer enough after this season
The polar bears, which have been praised in the past for their constancy of personnel often are not now reached a point where minimal course corrections are sufficient. It is a real break. The conditions are there, and soon a new coach will be presented - whether the mean Serge Aubin. Stephane Richer moves in the Background. The sports Director and interim coach, is considered by many in Berlin as the main culprit for the development of the past few months until recently, he was playing Parts of the Annex at home booed. Richer no longer afford to make in the future, many mistakes, his decisions in the coming weeks and months we will have to sit. Because another season like the past is not likely to be convey to Fans, sponsors and the owners in Los Angeles difficult, if not impossible.More about

As the polar bears of 2013 were the last Time Champions, they were the measure of all things in German football. Meanwhile, the power relations in the DEL other. That it has come to this, is the Berliners themselves. The 2018/19 season was just further proof.
