While I think that the points raised regarding what is wrong with hockey in Germany are mostly valid, I agree that lack of skill was not the issue here.
Actually I think we have more talented young players right now than we have had for a while. The problem really is that these players and coaches could not get the job done. Whether it was the burden of being the favourites or just plain mental weakness, fact is that they did not deliver.
