Olympic champion Alexander Pashkov shared his opinion on the situation with Avtomobilist.

“It seems to me that very few people are interested in the topic of the Motorist and its head coach Bill Peters, this is its peculiarity. This is due to the fact that the Canadian had to be fired last spring, when the unconvincing primacy was replaced by an equally unconvincing playoff. But a decision that was obvious to everyone did not follow, the question, as they say, was overripe.

As a result, the club’s management chose a quiet wave: money is spent, some victories are won, minimal signs of sports life seem to be observed. There is no fire, no fire, silence. A sad picture for one of the most hockey regions in the country.

It seemed to me that he was initially not ready to work in Russia, to some new challenges. Conventionally, if his compatriot Bob Hartley, let’s say, is quick, then Peters, realizing that it doesn’t work, chose a job according to the popular principle of “the soldier is sleeping – the service is on”. And then all the questions are to the leadership, which does not resist this “dream”, throwing a lot of money down the drain.

So you look at Avtomobilist’s neighbor according to the table, Neftekhimik, who overtook Yekaterinburg the day before. If I understand correctly, Nizhnekamsk’s budget is three times lower than that of Avtomobilist, and evaluate the result.

You need to understand that the role of a coach in modern hockey is still huge. Look at what young and modest line-up the coach of Neftekhimik Oleg Leontyev made of an efficient, recognizable team. I immediately remember the times of Peter Vorobyov, who could give results even with a minimal budget and from second-class players. At the same time, “Neftekhimik” does not fight back, but tries to impose its hockey on rivals, plays actively. Everything is built, there is no anarchy.

I would say that Leontyev’s story is a verdict for Peters. And for the management of Avtomobilist.

Avtomobilist needs new people, a new coaching staff. But, given all the drowsiness of the situation, I doubt that the reshuffle will take place – Peters will calmly wait for demobilization, pack his bags and fly home. Leaving behind two empty seasons “, – quotes Pashkov Russia-Hockey.ru.
