don't count on it. 1% at best. cologne usually is not willing to release players. somehow it can see their point. they need the players. a young german who can play on a better level is worth a lot with all those DEL rules.

but i really wonder why flaake signed till 2010. he's a bad skater and the CHL would be exactly what he needs. staying in cologne will hurt his development.

but then again, i don't even think he will ever make it to the NHL. raw talent, but something is missing.
