“The most vulnerable point of today’s SKA is the line of defense” – Tereshchenko

Published

Alexei Tereshchenko, the winner of the European Champions Cup-2007 and the Gagarin Cup-2010, spoke about SKA’s current playing form in the regular season.

— Alexey Vladimirovich, SKA started the regular season with seven victories in a row. Do you think Roman Rotenberg’s team has weaknesses and shortcomings?

— There are no teams without weaknesses. So the army from the Neva is not so simple. With 8 victories in a row, Petersburgers do not always give the impression of an absolute favorite in terms of the quality of hockey. A striking example of this is the match against Dynamo Moscow, where, in my opinion, there was an absolutely equal game with mutual chances of winning. I am convinced that SKA, like other clubs, will definitely have a recession and a large number of mistakes during such a long season. In hockey, as in any other game, the one who makes the fewest mistakes usually wins.

– If you still specify, then where, in your opinion, is the most vulnerable spot of the current SKA?

– In my opinion, the most vulnerable point of today’s SKA is the line of defense.

– But what about the incredibly successful start of the season from Alexander Nikishin?

– Let’s start with the fact that his signing in itself is an incredibly successful move for SKA. Sasha is an absolutely versatile hockey player, able to benefit the team both in defense and in attack. I have no doubt that with the proper attitude to the case, Nikishin is able to grow into one of the best defenders in the history of Russian hockey! – quotes Tereshchenko SportsDaily.ru.

On Wednesday, SKA won a guest victory over Spartak with a score of 5:1. Earlier, the KHL fined Rotenberg for an offensive gesture shown after a meeting with CSKA. According to Match TV, the amount of the fine was 300 thousand rubles.

— Are you satisfied with the physical condition of the players? The base was laid in the summer.

“We can never be satisfied because we always think we can improve. But we have very professional fitness trainers. We constantly keep in shape, and this is a very big job. The kids spend a lot of time in the gym.

– You were also overwhelmed with emotions, and the KHL fined you.

— Hockey is a game of emotions, and different gestures can be interpreted in different ways. Somewhere my emotions really overwhelmed me, but we won a very important victory.
