i hope that will change now. the re-start with a closer connection to the young lions will hopefully lead to a better youth program. even though most of the good players from rhein-main region go to mannheim, a good program in frankfurt would help hockey a lot. nauheim is simply not big enough to support that.

i plan to watch most of his games this season, so i hopefully can give you a scouting report later this year. i have no idea if he can play, but his size is indeed special.
So true, I live near Frankfurt, and I know there is still some interest in the Lions, but the roots are just not that deep. I really hope they take the chance to rebuild with a solid foundation in youth hockey.

It would be great if you could provide some insight on the kid, and any other that might stand out.
