Ahh ok, so I didnt read those articles wrong and what the hell, so basically for the Champion its "apply, pass....ohh sorry, nobody is leaving, try again next year, maybe then you can join us"

Pretty much, the league will never grow above 14 again unless the people in charge randomly decide they want it to happen? Lame.

there's no desire to grow. some in the league would prefer to make the league even smaller. i remember times when some thought about 10 teams to have a better schedule.

the problem with the DEL is that there's no "league". they have no one to decide things and no one who takes care of the growth of the league. all teams are equal and of course each team has a different interest. and of course the small market teams don't want relegation because they would likely be first while teams like berlin would support relegation because they are too good and too rich to ever get relegated.
and all those different interests keep the league from ever developing. there's really no progress. no new ideas how to make the league bigger. it's the just business as usual. but that's a general problem in german. the federation has nothing to say anymore. so every league is doing their own stuff and it just gets worse from top to bottom.

this is why german fans often sound bitter when talking about german hockey.

Eisbären Berlin are DEL Champions again.

I really loved the whole finals series. 2 great teams playing at the same level.
This could have gone either way.

Game 4 was something else as a fan of Mannheim. Listening to that was terrible and listening to the third period today was even worse.

Congrats to Berlin though. They completely deserved the title. Zepp was huge for them.

As a fan of Berlin of course it was sort of the other way around. But no matter the outcome this was a great series with so many great stories.

- Sven Felski winning his sixth championship in his 1000th game for the Eisbären.
- The respect both teams and even the fans had for each other. Even the Eisbären Fans were chanting "Adler Mannheim" after the game, and not to mock them but out of respect. There was some great sportsmanship on both sides, something that I'd like to see more often.

Just a small change for the 2012/13 season

The foreign limit will drop from 10 to 9.

The Berlin fans were really great and respectful to Mannheim and that is great. Both teams played great and game 4 was a special game (more so for Berlin fans haha) but still the series was great. Proud of the team for making it back to the finals and maybe next year will be the year to bring back the championship to Mannheim. Plus the accomplishment for Felski is truly remarkable.

I'm still hoping the Freezers miraculously find some wheels next year. This year was a good start, proud to see some progress. Proud of the fans as well. I attended that gruesome, way-too-high 1-8 loss vs. Mannheim. Won't forget that atmosphere, despite the loss, any time soon.
Köln's my no. 2 pick, wouldn't mind them finding some success as well.

As for these years playoffs, congratulations to Berlin and especially Felski.

Hey, I have to respect a team with this sort of Captain.

Could you guys help me out again please?
http://www.abendzeitung-muenchen.de/...5b7e2d826.html

What I gather is that München is no dead (they wont relegate, they have to start all over again?) and the sale of their licence to Schwenningen is all but signed?

Thanks for the help in advance.

München tried to get sponsoring from the municipal works, but didn't get it due to some political reasons. They won't be starting over, there won't be any professional hockey franchise in München any more for now.
You're right about the license - it's almost in Schwenningens hands.

Thanks PietB.

This München/SERC 04 story has to end soon right, 24.May applications for licence must be in correct? I would assume if München cant get money by the weekend, they sell it off next week.

I also assume Düsseldorf is safe for another year? I havent heard anything about them for some time now.

Story is over. The DEL franchise stays in Munich. Red Bull will be the new sponsor for the team for the coming season. The name will be changed to EHC Red Bull München.

This deal only covers the 12/13 Season. Whether or not Red Bull will continue this project beyond that is unknown. But at least for one more season there will be DEL hockey in Munich.

As far as Düsseldorf is concerned I have also not heard anything new, but it sure seems like they will remain in the DEL, as they continue to get the roster for next season together. They have lost many players and are currently signing a lot of young players to replace them.

This comes as a big surprise. Last thing I read about them wasn't very promising...

Im moving to Heidelberg next year. Would Mannheim be the closest hockey for me to watch?

Yes, there may be some lower tirer hockey team that might be closer, but Mannheim should definitely be your first choice. It's really not far 14-15 km, I think.

Kölner Haie will play in Chelyabinsk at pre-season tourney (15-19.8. 2012). Why? It is a long distance to travel for 4 games or so.
KHL clubs Traktor Chelyabinsk, Avangard Omsk region, Metallurg Magnitogorsk and Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk wil play here as well.

As stupid as it sounds, why not?

It's a great opportunity to test your players against some of the best teams in Europe. Additionally it's also a great way to motivate your players. Exhibition games against German teams are pretty boring, while playing in Russia seems to be a highlight in the off-season.

I see you. I though about long travel distance to Ural city. If tourney take place somwhere in Switzerland or so, then ok.

Another point, does Kölner Haie have good relationship with KHL clubs? As I know, club does not play European Trophy, why?

There was rumour about 3 german clubs wanting to join KHL in last year. It was said by vicepresident KHL. Is Kölner Haie one of them? Maybe it is answer for my previous Q about relationship... hmm?
