Makes sense:

Avs: Uwe Krupp
Leafs: Holzer, Mueller, Flaake
Sharks: Sturm, Ehrhoff, Greiss, Goc, Patzold, Abeltshauser
Bruins: Seidenberg, Sturm
Canucks: Ehrhoff, Sturm, Sulzer, Butenschon

They've all had their fair share of German players/draftees. I know San Jose has drafted more Germans than that, but I can't think of any except maybe Hospelt.
