Well we do have some good coaches in Germany. Ralph Krueger who is right now not coaching the Oilers but actually he would be
Or Uwe Krupp, coach of my beloved sharks.
But the thing with hockey and basically all sports in Germany is, that 99% of the people don't care about junior tournaments.
They want superb players on the mens level, but they don't care about where they come from. So it's hard to find a good coach because they don't want to "waste" their talent on something so unpopular.
That being said, I think that we can ice a decent roster in the next few years..
Rieder, Kühnhackl, Abeltshauser, Noebels, Holzer, Draitsaitl, Kahun combined with Ehrhoff, Seidenberg, Goc, Greiss and a few DEL players should be competitive, still far away from being a medal contender.
EDIT: Simpson would be a huge improvement. Right now I would love to lose in OT!
