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.
The Sharks had also drafted Dominik Bielke, Patrick Ehelechner and Timo Pielmeier.

Also since the acquistions of Ehrhoff and Sulzer, the Sabres seem to be getting more popular. They also have some tradition with German players. Hecht has been playing for them for a long time, and they had drafted players like Gogulla, and Schütz in recent years, and Jayson Meyer and Uwe Krupp sometime in the 80s, 1983 or 1984 I think.
