During the SCL Tigers' game against SC Bern last Friday, their future coach was already watching closely and he is thinking about applying some changes next season: "I don't want to say too much about the current tactics," O'Leary tells the Wochen-Zeitung. "But you can certainly develop something in this area."

There will also be some changes on their roster. He is not yet sure if he will need four import-forwards or only three forwards and a defenseman. "It's important that we find a power play defenseman, someone who can make a good breakaway, play a good first pass," the 42-year-old explains. "But that could also be a Swiss."

In order to reach the playoffs next season, there is only one recipe, according to O'Leary: "Every single player has to show a lot of fighting spirit, passion, and the right work ethic. Then we can reach the playoffs. It won't be easy, but I believe in it."
