We are more skilled than Austria and outshot them 38:19 but Austria had the better work ethic and was mentally stronger all throughout the tournament. Therefore, they deserve it.

It really is a disaster for the development of the sport in Germany for two reasons:

- youth hockey loses over a million euros of funding
- the olympic games would have been broadcasted at primetime to a very large audience. And with 6 or so NHL players there would have been the potential for a decent showing.
