If you hold an NHL-game in Europe, you should make sure that as many people as possible can see it. There are at least three or four arenas with NHL-size, no need to use one that is something like 4000 seats below the smallest NHL-arena.

It definately is a much better choice than Frankfurt or Munich, but I can't see how it could compare favorably against arenas like Cologne, Prague or Berlin.

That seems a pretty weird choice of German cities. I'd understand Berlin, because Anschütz is opening the new arena next year, or Köln, maybe even Mannheim or Düsseldorf, even though those two might be a bit small for an NHL-game.
My guess is that they are considering Frankfurt and Munich because of their airports. IMHO Berlin's new venue would be a premium choice, and Cologne or Hamburg as serious contenders....

Berlin is reportedly talking to defenceman Dan McGillis, a 35-year old Canadian with over 700 NHL-games on his resume. He is apparantly known as hard-hitting, with a great shot from the blue line. Sounds like a real reinforcement for Berlin...

At one time he was hard hitting and had a great shot. Last season he was put on waivers by the Devils and not one NHL team claimed him so he ended up in the AHL.

Honestly I don't think that he would be a good d-man in the DEL. He's not a great skater, which would be a major liability on the big ice.

Rumour has it that Berlin is also talking to Nathan Dempsey about a return to the DEL. He would be an alternative for McGillis.

Cologne cooperates with the Anaheim Ducks:

I'll guess you will see some German prospects head over during summer camps. This might even get the Ducks to play a game in Germany

What I am pissed of is this sucking hostility against any form of modernization in the team's periphery. I think even if the crowds' urinals will be renewed there will be a petition against it.

Yeah, every hockeyfan knows that changes are baaad
It's really funny, there are so many "hardcore" fans who see every change as a attack on "their" game, yet they like to ignore that hockey isn't even close to the game it once was, it was changed so many times it isn't even funny.

Same with arenas, etc.
Never go against tradition, because tradition is always better, and if the roof falls on our head, at least we died watching real hockey

I'm looking for some guys who played DEL last year, but appear to be missing in action this season:

Patrick Boileau
Christoph Brandner
Cory Cross
Craig Darby
Ted Drury
Jesse Fibiger
J.F. Fortin
Aaron Gavey
Michael Henrich
Matt Higgins
Craig Johnson
Alan Letang
Denis Pederson
Mike Pudlick
Daniel Tkaczuk
Jason Ulmer
Chad Wiseman (AHL last year, but thought he headed to DEL?)

Any word on the new homes for any of these guys (even if it's the retirement home)?

Send a message via MSN to danista
Patrick Boileau -> retired
Christoph Brandner -> Hamburg Freezers
Craig Darby -> Innsbruch, Austria
Ted Drury -> retired

J.F. Fortin -> Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg
Michael Henrich -> Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg

hockeydb.com hasn't included the Wolfsburg Stats, that's the reason you didn't get an info there. All DEL-Stats are now powered by pointstreak: http://www.pointstreak.com/prostats/...l?leagueid=487

He's still with the Eisbären Berlin, but is currently out after groin-surgery (think he is in rehab already).

Cory Cross has retired as well.

Brandner should return to action pretty soon, while Letang will continue to be out for quite a few months. He had seven surgeries and was put into a coma for a while. The earliest time he could resume training is at the end of the year.

The first six minutes yesterday have been the best since... I don't even know. But afterwards they "stopped skating, stopped forechecking, stopped playing" (quote by GPF). It was really boring.
The only positive fact is that we would have lost this game last season.

A Chernomaz quote: "Wir müssen uns gewaltig steigern. Einen Gang zurückschalten und ein Spiel verwalten, das können wir nicht."

We have to improve enormously. We cannot shift down and manage the game only.

From what I could get out of the translation it sounded like a really bad situation...including the team saying they would not discuss the matter again. Anyone know what happened? I've always been a Sellars fan, but he seems to be running out of teams to play for.
