No, I wasn't in Hamburg for the first few days of training and now they have left the city for a training camp in Füssen.

I think I remember Karalahti saying that it should take some time to get in perfect shape, though I can't find the article right now. Going by what the fans who did see the training said, he is in good shape. It may not be the shape he thinks he needs, but he definately isn't out of shape.

As for who will replace Barta, I guess Schmidle will take the place on the 4th line while Mueller moves into the top 9. The Freezers didn't have much depth last season either. It was 12 forwards plus Schmidle and Driendl as FL, but those two weren't avaiable all the time.

Right now, Daniel Huhn is on a one month tryout. He seems to be the only additional player.
I'd prefer more depth, but then again, many DEL-teams only use those four lines and are down to three or less if injuries occur.
