Niko Eronen. Andre lag ut i serien “Trenerpraten” er Niko Eronen, hovedtrener for Narvik.
Som alle kan se så er det et finsk svung over navnet, så overraskelsen er vel ikke stor at svarene kommer på engelsk. Vi som er vant til engelske ord som icing, offside, slashing og roughing tar dette på strak arm selvfølgelig. Lesergrunnlaget ville jo blitt snevret betraktelig inn om svarene kom på finsk.

Dine tanker rundt forsesongen? Barmark-treningen? Har oppkjøringen til sesongen off-ice vært som du planla?
I can’t wait to get season going. Many changes has happened in our team but in a every level I feel pleased and happy what we have done during the summer and how the team looks at the moment. From May to the end of July we had a dryland program for the boys so no team practices on that time.
We went on ice 1.8 so that’s two weeks earlier than last season. We run the dryland tests in the first week and had individual skills trainings on ice. After that we have been practicing 5-6 on ice in every week and also run the off ice practices everyday so everything has went like we have planned.
Er laget mer eller mindre komplett nå og klar for 32 seriekamper?
It is sad that there’s only 32 games but that’s reality for upcoming season so we just have to focus on those games. We have played four exhibition games now and two more coming in next weekend. From those games what we have been playing we can say that we are going to the a right direction and we are ready to go when Hasle-Løren comes to Narvik.
Kom dere på is når dere ville?
Yes. We wanted to go on ice two weeks earlier than last season and that happened, thanks for the club and to the rink company!
Har dere hatt noe spesielt fokus i oppkjøringen på is? Noe publikum kommer til å legge merke til?
Narvik will be more active and aggressive than last season. We want to be the team who makes more initiatives on ice. We will try play more winning hockey this year.
Hvilke lag blir blant topp 4 i årets sesong? Blir det like jevnt som i fjor?
These are not in any order but I think Narvik, Nidaros, Comet and Ringerike will be my guess for top4. I think the season will be even more tight than last year
Hva er målsettingen?
Win the league
Har du noen oppfordring til dommer-trioene som skal i aksjon hver onsdag-lørdag?
Hvis du skulle ønske deg noe mer av publikum som er på hjemmekamper, hva ville det være?
We have the best audience in this league and I know that they will continue supporting us in a same way what they have been doing for a many years now. There is still some free seats at the for the new fans so I hope that we will see some new faces in the games too😊
Flere tilskuere har snakket om opprykks-systemet i ishockey. De har snakket varmt om å bytte til direkte opp- og nedrykk sisteplass Get og førsteplass 1 div, og så kval på lag 2. Har du gjort deg noen tanker rundt dette?
Yea that could be a good option but I think we could do something before qualification. What I’m really hoping is a some kind of playoffs. Four best teams could play one extra weekend, douple games and best of two scenario. 1.-4. plays two games in regular seasons winners home and 2.-3. plays two games in regular seasons seconds home. Split the money or something. Then the winners from those games goes to play for qualification with GET teams and the better 1.Div team in the qualification is the winner of 1.Div.
Noen stikkord for sesongen? Oppfordring til lokalmiljøet? Noen annet?
We are proud to play for the community of Narvik and for all Northern Norway. Say hi when we meet at the town and hopefully we will see you at the rink.
Let’s have a fair and good season!
