Nice win for the Lions yesterday against DEG. I'd love to have Joseph on this team though.

the way things are developing in wolfsburg, i'd say that oppenheimer is going to the better paycheck.

This development of signings in September for the upcoming season sucks... German guys seem to get a huge premium only for their nationality.
****, I should not have played field hockey...

Oppenheimer bleibt ein Löwe

Oppenheimer denies to have signed in Wolfsburg, yet. Norris wants to re-sign him, but Oppenheimer's agent likes to wait because of €€€.

It is pretty dumb...if this is true, why would the Lions bother playing him or continue to try and develop him if he is leaving? I would just send him down....

This is not the way the DEL works. If he has signed yet he will continue to play for the Lions.

yes and no. would you want a player on your team that signed a contract with another team while the season was not even really started?

the timing of contract talks these days in the DEL is weird. what else than "it's not true" can a player say when being asked. and in spring he will confirm the change to another team.

In my opinion the DEL should disallow talk and signings before May, 1st. Then would have a real free agency period.
---

The same applied to Hackert two years ago. Almost everyone knew that he signed in Mannheim and he was booed every single bad move he made.

---
If Oppenheimer signed or if not does not make a difference for the line-up.

Young - Taylor - Heerema
Kavanagh - Hahn - Langfeld
Gawlik (reconvalescent) - Wright (reconvalescent) - Vorobiev (injured)
Wörle - Oppenheimer - Danner

We do not have much depth in the forward squad, so every (healthy) player is needed, especially if he is German.

---
It is to sad that Ward hat to sit in the not existing press box almost every game.

Desperately waiting for Gordon's release from Canadian citizenship...

I thought the 2 liga was similiar to AHL. Not exactly the same,but can't they sign or bring someone up to fill a spot? I obviously want him to stay,but I don't see the point of wasting development time for someone who is headed out of town.

You cannot fill spots easily with players under contract in minor leagues. You have to an negotiate explicit agreement with these teams for using their players in your roster even for a few games.
And mostly you have send down some of your 3rd and 4th liners for a few games as a return.

If you have an official affiliate in the minors it works better.
But you always have to use the "Förderlizenzsystem"

Danner could be the next target.

The European Union and labor attorneys would be all over it, so I guess, there is little chance to see this happen.

I know. But to restrict the signing of EU foreigners is also against EU laws.

According to the Eishockey News (and Oppenheimer's agent) there are only few details to negotiate in Oppenheimer's extension.

Not 100 percent sure but it really looks better than in September/October when the Wolfsburg rumor was all around.

With Danner re-signed and Wörle/Osterloh/Gawlik under contract until 2010 I am more optimistic that the German group stays together.
They get quality minutes in Frankfurt (wonder whether this would be the case in Mannheim/Berlin, too) and use them succesfully to bring energy into the game. The only drawback is that they do not produce as much as they give away too many quality chances.

Vorobiev Update (BILD.de):
Quote:
An Training ist nicht zu denken.
Vorobjev traurig: „Es geht mir immer noch nicht besser. Ich weiß nicht mehr, was ich machen soll.“
Work Out is impossible.
Vorobiev sad: "I am not feeling better..."

So no one has been overly impressed with Gawlik?
