Yeah, and Brittigheim even scored two more goals this season with it's beauuutiful play...

Nevertheless, Tobias reminds me of a less physical version of Mike Richards. He has great defensive instincts and leadership along with Sturm- like speed and excellent stickhandling. His backhand shot is probably one of the best in Germany right now. He also is a crunch time player and down to earth guy.
He is playing for the club with the best player development in Germany. Sturm and Schubert are present. Rieder, Kühnhackl is the future and Landshut's answer to MoDo's Forsberg, Näslund!
