    He is holding most of the records for goalscoring in the german league and the National team.He was the first german,who became the best goalscorer in a WC1978 and at the olympics in 1984.What is a big achievement ,cause our nationalteam was crap and there was the red machine with Malzev Petrov etc.. I saw him playing .He was a f..g big guy with good hands and a natural touch for goalscoring.Maybe a little bit like Draisaitl.

    Kühnhackl looked like a superstar, when played vs Soviet and Czech teams in 70-80s, pretty few NHLers looked as good back to then.

    I think, he was kinda Mario lite. Big, smooth skater, all the talent in the world, but just didn't wanna work as hard as it took to play in the best league in the world. Of course, NHL salaries weren't as attractive in 70s as they are now, otherwise he would have probably found some work ethic reserves and moved to NA.

    He did attend a Rangers training camp, but couldn't agree about contract as he had better terms at home.

    Yeah, as I said, NHL salaries weren't anything special back to then. I think, nowdays Drai is getting about 20 times more, than what he could get in Germany, and they say he's underpaid...

    Sorry, but what a load of crap How dare you say he didn't want to work hard? Künhackl looked as good as the best Czech and Soviet players of the 70s and 80s. There's is zero doubt that he would have been an eite NHler, too. There simply wasn't any reason for him to go the NHL. The NHL in the 70s and 80s wasn't all that attractive for a guy like Künhackl. There simpy wasn't areason to go there for him. He earned just as much money in gerany as he would have in the NHL while having a good life at home and being an abolute star and household name. Nobody gave a rats as about the NHL back then.

    He had so much talent, he didn't need to work that hard to be good.
