Thanks and good-bye for the moment
The last match of the play-off quarter-final against Jokerit should have ruined their impression of the season for the most devoted Dinamo fans
According to all the rules of the game, the last match of the play-off quarter-final against Jokerit should have ruined their impression of the season for the most devoted Dinamo fans
Incredibly, it has taken just a year for the club to create a new line-up virtually from scratch, putting new life into the team. Dinamo is now a well-consolidated, fully-fledged and competitive squad able to attack its rivals at any level. So far, this capability has not been shown during the decisive matches of the tournament; more time is needed. Most importantly, the blue and white ‘machine’, which has been idle during the last two seasons, is back in service.
We can assume that the main line-up, who created miracles in the KHL last December, will remain unchanged. Dinamo’s many players feel comfortable with the Minsk club, as seen during the regular ice battles. Many of the veterans, along with their wives and children, have found their second home in Minsk, also becoming loved by the fans. Life is in full swing for them, both on the ice and beyond. This is a good sign, as a warm atmosphere is a guarantee of collective success.
As well as the strong shared loyalty and confidence in the future, fans are every hopeful of victory. The club’s pyramid development plan has not been in vain: Dinamo’s associated teams, which are now steadily growing in strength, failed to regularly show their mettle in the various hockey leagues this season but are still making progress Many young talents have been recognised and been given chances to improve their careers. There are undoubtedly grounds for optimism about Dinamo’s future.
