Once you make that move back you have to perform exceptionally well to gain back the attention, and that isn't going to happen when someone plays backup in the DEL.
I also can't understand this decision as it will be probably the end of his NHL chance, although he played much better than lots of drafted goalies in the OHL.
I don't understand, why so many German players do not try to stay in the US, when i think about F.Schütz, Gogulla...
