I'm seriously confused why Niederberger wasn't picked in the last draft... Sure, he's with 5'11''/180cm relatively small, but his play was great last season and is even better in this campaign.
@Maverick41, why do you think this:

I really hope that he'll get an entry-level contract with a NHL team, even when he has to play in the AHL for an extended period of time. Everything else (like going back to Germany) would be a pure waste of talent imo, don't you think?
P.S.: Once again, thank you very much for this informative thread. I'm checking it daily and after you added some relevant informations about the players at the bottom of your post, this thread is even better.
