Just any facts and info you could give me. I will pick away at your brain after that
DEL (=Deutsche Eishockey Liga) - > 1st Division
1. Bundesliga -> 2nd Division
Oberliga -> 3rd Division
Regionalliga -> 4th Division

Then come further lower, regional divisions - but they are called differently in the different federal states of Germany.
DEL works like the NHL - With the beginning of this season the system of promotion and relegation has been removed.

Just let me know if you need to know more !
