Much better doesn't mean good enough

statistics are correct. Most of the time. And the Numbers speak for themselves. A year ago, in the first season in the Swiss League, went Kloten with a maximum stock balance sheet in the national team break at the beginning of November: 21Punkte from 15 Games, which were 1.4 per game. Brought you had this balance with a series of 7 low in October. At the end of the qualification was the worst Cut of a Absteigers stand with a ranking of 5 for years. The Failure in the Playoff quarter-final, and the coach's dismissal were the next low point, after almost everyone had thought that had been reached with the descent actually.

With a year of delay, it goes forward again. The balance sheet up to the national team break in 2019: 18 to Play, there were 38 points, 2,11 per Match. In October, Kloten has only gained. Overall, it took only four defeats – never two in a row. On Saturday, the Team Leader was even around one and a half hours, because Biasca defeated actually Ajoie. "Much better" – that is, the predicate Kloten compared to 2018/19.

The players would have the potential

But, as in the case of the rare opportunities of the last winter, the EHC also awarded this Time, the Chance to strengthen with a good self-performance place 1. The 2:7 against Olten was not only the first home defeat after seven Victories and the first to a total of eight Be carried out in series. It was a proof that Kloten increase is slowed down by a strong "But". Who wants to be in this League at the end of the season the best team of Olten so dominate. It was not the first Time this season. Because the 2:0 victory in Olten, the "power of the mice were" actually the better Team.

If Kloten forgets his good Organisation, discipline and consistency in their own third, then the Team is less than mediocre.

With a coach By Hanberg, of humility is, in "" go ahead and take the blame for the 2:7 not at the players, but rather sought, with a hoped-for boost to the front. Progress in the game system, in the manner of the occurrence are evident. The new aliens are very good (Faille) or have potential (Figren), Forget is on a increase run. The young striker Marco Lehmann and Ramon Knellwolf, thank you with top services that you may play in addition to Faille.

Hard work to Drive back

But in a Team there are still to many players, the temptation of the Schlendrians succumb. As had been made on Tuesday against Winterthur from the 0:2 after a weak beginning of a 8:2, had to think a lot of yourself into a false sense of security. Winterthur no degree knife was. Olten uncovered with a vicious, determined, and clear-line style of play relentlessly. If Kloten forgets his good Organisation, discipline and consistency in their own third, and without the pace of play, then the Team is less than mediocre. Or even less.

Until Thursday is training hard, then the players get three days. The Coach searches for solutions that give the team the Drive to you wegarbeitete in October, the opponents, and in part overwhelmed. The players have made yourself progress, you would be actually able to do their part to contribute to the next higher level. Because "Much better" does not necessarily mean that the EHC Kloten is good enough.
