If you look at the rosters at
you can see players with dual nationalities.
Augsburg has only 2 German forwards, Ingolstadt only 6 German-trained skaters. These players usually make up the third and fourth lines.
In Switzerland I think there's just 4 imports per team
I think the discussion is going in a wrong direction here. We didn't not qualify because we lack skill or player material. The skill level we iced was superior to the other teams. We were mentally weaker in crucial moment in my opinion.
