former national coach sturm: olympics probably without nhl pros

"Time is running out, and a decision must certainly be made slowly. At the moment, I don’t expect to see NHL players on the ice at the olympics," sturm told the newspaper "augsburger allgemeine" in an interview.

He regrets it, but "on the other hand, it’s a tough blow for the clubs when one of their players tests positive for the corona virus in beijing," said the current assistant coach of the los angeles kings. And this was not only going to affect the NHL clubs, but the DEL clubs as well. "You also have to remember that the winter olympics go on until the end of february," said the 43-year-old, "that is, until the hectic phase of the season with the playoffs and K.O.-duels.

"Anything is possible"

The german national ice hockey team no longer has to fear the top nations. "No matter if it’s a russian or canadian team, i don’t see anyone who is clearly better than us," stressed sturm. "Especially without the NHL-players everything would have been possible at such a tournament again."

Already in 2018, the NHL did not interrupt its season during the winter games in pyeongchang/south korea. Without the world’s best players, national coach sturm’s german team stood up to most of the top nations and sensationally won the silver medal. That is to this day the greatest german ice hockey success ever.
