Their player material is far from the best, but they're still 3rd in the league, because they have a coach with a solid gameplan. The only worse coach than Raipe in the league is HIFK's Soppa, who has no authority and no gameplan.
Yea but ilves has been in huge problems in the company, team was without owner and without goverment, it has worser material than saipa. Now they have again been without goaltender, luckily some A-junior has played well. Its really hard for a new coach to succes in that situation, I think Raipe would've done just well coaching Jokerit for example, or any other team would've been better. I know he isn't ready as a coach, but you just cannot blaim only Raipe.
