Exactly, and I'm still trying to figure out if he was joking, or if this is the real reason, but since he also said that Kotschnew would have played if they were facing a team from Eastern Europe, I think he is not joking. Though he also said something about a "gut feeling".

I like Rob Zepp as a person, as far as one can tell those things from interviews and behaviour during games, but he is no more than a solid DEL-goalie, who is unlikely to steal a game. You rarely get bad games from him, but his stellar performances are just as rare, and we will need our goalies to be outstanding in every game.

That being said I still hope that both Finland and Germany find a way to advance to the next round.
