First they had problems with getting sponsor's money despite signed contracts wich led few times to a problems with paying players on time.
Then there were problems within locker room, between players and between certain players and head coach(which allegedly preferred some players without any hockey related reasons)...most of this originates from locker room(including coaching staff) full of mercenaries without firm character or any sort of loyalty to club.
Further more there are many jealous(I can't find better or more fitting word to describe it) people trying there best(or worst) to bring down any aspect of club...wich is just sad and totaly ilogical becouse club functions soly from private money and money of sponsors wich is the main difference between Medvescak and 99% of other sports clubs in country.

When you look at those sort of problems it seems like all of those lead back to two main problems: lack of domestic players and lack of sponsors
