As DEB (Deutscher Eishockey-Bund) president Franz Reindl tells the SID, they do still want the tournament to take place. Latvia has agreed to replace one of the teams not taking place, the DEB is currently working on trying to find a replacement of the second team.
"It looks good, but we don't have a definite yes yet," Reindl tells the same source. The tournament is supposed to take place from November 5 to November 8.
The Deutschland Cup is also under review in Switzerland. As Blick reported yesterday, the club representatives would prefer their players not to go, but the National Team Director Lars Weibel still wants the team to take part in the tournament. Klaus Zaugg (Watson) even has a stronger report today, writing that the clubs want to have Weibel's decision to cancel all national team games this weekend.
