Reparation and reconstruction were the slogans for the season 2008/09 but once again the bitter realization that the team of SCB did not have enough playoff qualification. Despite the freezing cold and the icy wind in the PostFinance-Arena, which was being remodelled, an average of 16’200 paying spectators found their way to the games – a new record. But the faithful followers were again badly disappointed.
SCB failed against the eight of the qualification round, EV Zug and was eliminated with 2:4 wins. After detailed analysis the coach’s duo Van Boxmeer / Kurashev was released and SCB decided to plan the new season without Ramzi Abid and Sébastien Bordeleau.
