Marvin Cupper has been very good this season for Shawinigan... I guess he will be your starter?

I think these are the players that have played for this team so far this year:

Marvin Cüpper (G)
Philip Lehr (G)
Elmar Trautmann (G)

Steven Bär (D/F)
Maximilian Faber (D)
Dominik Fuchs (D)
Henry Haase (D)
Lukas Jentsch (D)
Kilian Keller (D)
Manuel Kindl (D)
Stephan Kronthaler (D)
Oliver Mebus (D)
Max Meirandres (D)
Eric Stephan (D/F)
Alexander Winkler (D)

Alexander Ackermann (F)
Feodor Boiarchinov (F)
Dominik Daxlberger (F)
Hans Detsch (F)
Daniel Fischbuch (RW)
Lars Grözinger (LW)
Raphael Kaefer (F)
Dominik Kahun (LW)
Florin Ketterer (F)
John Koslowski (F)
Christian Kretschmann (C)
Marcel Kurth (F)
Nickolas Latta (C/RW)
Andreas Pauli (C)
Leo Pföderl (LW)
Dennis Reimer (F)
Ralf Rinke (F)
Huba Sekesi (F)
Frederik Tiffels (LW)
Sebastian Uvira (RW)
Thomas Zuravlev (F)

It is very likely that the roster will be made up by these players plus maybe Orendorz and Draisaitl, though I would not be that surprised if they don't select Draisaitl, because he is "too young".

I like the overall depth at forward and defense so they should be able to select a decent roster, but as I said in the thread on the Germany board, I don't like our goalies too much. I expect Lehr und Cüpper to be the ones playing. Lehr is doing ok in Berlin after he was cut from his USHL team, so maybe he can step up.
Cüpper really worries me. Not that he is horrible, but his confidence level could be an issue. At least he is used to playing behind the inferior team every night.

I'm not sure why you'd be worried, he's had an excellent attitude so far this season and has been the Cataractes' best player. He is rock solid back there despite backstopping an awful team with a very young defense.

As you said, he is used to seeing many shots a night so he should be good to go for the germans in this tourney.

It's just the last time I have seen him play, before he went to Shawinigan, he was very inconsistent, and seemed to struggle once he conceded a goal. I have seen some games of him where he was great up to point when he let in the first goal, and then the floodgates opened.
I am glad to hear, that he is doing well, despite the not so good numbers, and I would be thrilled if he got his game back, because two years ago I was pretty high on him myself.

Still I would feel better if Niederberger was eligible to play, but your posts give me a little more hope regarding our goaltending in the tournament. Thanks for that.

I don't think a nation like Germany can afford to leave off a talent like Draisatl on the basis of "too young". There's so few impact talents on this roster, they need Leon every year until he's ineligible.

Very true. Germany is going to have a tough time staying in the top group this year. Latvia has a lot of high end talent like Girgensons, Blugers, Lipsbergs, Jevpalovs and Bukarts. Germany's depth and goaltending will have to be very good if they want to stay alive.

I am really happy with the new format of only one team being relegated. This year especially it is nice, because Germany and Latvia are clearly above the rest. I think a lot of people are talking about Latvia, but this German team could do some damage as well. They have some talent you do not normally see. I really hope they stay up, because I think next years team would be seriously dangerous.
The way I see their roster panning out.

G- Marvin Cüpper (94)
G- Philip Lehr (93)

Haase(93)- Keller(93)
Kronthaler(93)- Faber(93)
Mebus(93)- Mierandres(93)
Bar(93)...Kindl(93) next in line

These are not actual lines... just an idea of the order

Reider(93)- Draisaitl(95)- Pföderl(93)
Pauli (93)- Uvira(93)- Kahun(95)
Latta(93)- Kretschmann(93)- Kurth(94)
Fischbuch(93)-Grözinger(93)-Sekesi(93)

At this point I would then consider... Zuravlev(93), Tiffels(95) as wildcards. I am sure one or two of the other 93 born players would fill the extra role and possibly replace Draisaitl or Kahun if they are deemed too young. Personally I think that would be a tragedy givne how they are playing!

I agree. If someone is not "too young" to get points in WHL, then he certainly isn't too young to play against same age groups of players from Swiss, Latvia, Czechs and others...

Good roster,the guys should be able to compete with most of the other teams.As for the forwards,I could see Detsch and Rinke making the team.Detsch is playing really good for Kaufbeuern in the 2nd leauge and played mainly in the top-6.Rinke had a good start in Bremerhaven and should bring some physical elements to the team.

That is good to know. I have little information on either player. By the sounds of it, Rinke would make the perfect 12th/13th forward to add to my roster projection.

Any guesses on who Latta will be paired with on the PK?

Not really, but Rieder was very dangerous last year on the PK for the Kitchener Rangers, so he could be a candidate for one of the PK units. But I don't know how serious his injury is, and if he will even be at 100% for the tournament.

Does anyone have any knowledge about that? It would really suck if wasn't available or not at full strength.

Coach Steve Spott said a Bone Scan revealed a fracture. Out indefinitely.

Hearing Rieder is out for the WJC. That's tough. They're the second bottom team (Lativa) to lose their best player.

I always like watching upsets, but that's hard to do if your only elite player is injured.

In upset(s) goalie(s) plays main role.

Has Girgensons been decided one way or another?

Sucks about Rieder.

It's fair to say that Draisaitl's chances of making the team are currently pretty doggone good. It's not just his WHL production that has earned him attention and notiriety - he was also a topscorer in the DNL and then one of the U-18 tourney's top producers last spring.

I'd even go so far as to say that a kid like Parker Tuomie (Mannheim Junior Adler), who first turned 17 on the last day of October, has an outside shot as well.

In general though, coach Hoefner has a lot of kids to pick from who are currently playing in the DEL, 2nd German Bundesliga or Canadian juniors.

What the team can make of that is yet to be known, but just about the entire team is used to playing against faster, stronger players and there is going to be some good size on this squad.

Losing Rieder would NOT be a good start though. Arguably the best offensive player available for this year's entry.

In addition to the very likely Draisaitl, Rieder and Orendorz, who I think will all be there if healthy, I've bolded the names of players who - also if healthy - should at least be in Ufa with the team.

Some others who may have a decent shot are forwards Sven Ziegler (EBB), Denis Shevyrin (KEV), Eric Gollenbeck (MJA), and defenseman Dominik Tiffels (MJA).

Kaufbeuren's Markus Eisenschmid was thought of as a strong possibility heading into the season, but his start was modest (not bad) and now he's injured, I believe.

I'm also going to go out on a limb and say that Dman Tim Bender (MJA) is at least brought along for the ride as one of the 8 or 9 Dmen.

Unfortunately for Germany, Yasin Ehliz just barely misses the cut agewise. He's been very good taking a fairly regular shift in the DEL this season, well on his way to a 25 point season.

This isn't as good as 2011 when they had Kuhnhackl, Rieder, Abeltshauser, Treutle, Grubauer, Hofflin and Noebels on the squad. That team was relegated, but because of the rule changes I think they have a shot to stay up. Especially if Latvia is without Girgensons.
