The least he could have done is to try it in North America for one or two years. There surely must have been a team that would have offered him a contract. He certainly would have played a bigger role than he will in the DEL.
It is just a 1-year-deal, and I am not totally sure if that is a good or a bad thing.
What I really don't get is, that it's Munich. I am going to assume that Steinhauer is on his way out of there, otherwise he might not even be the backup.
Also Reimer appeared in 49 out of 52 games for Munich last season leaving a grand total of 235:00 minutes of playing time for Steinhauer. Unless Niederberger gets significantly more chances he is looking at a lost year.

Also Sebastian Uvira and Philip Lehr will be returning to Germany as well. Uvira signed with Augsburg, and Lehr returns to Mannheim.
