Any medal (though we do absolutely have a couple of chances) will be worthy of a massive celebration! :p

Looking at it per event doesn't really work well when trying to come up with a total number of medals, but alright, here we go:

 

No speed skating

Snowboarding: maybe 1 medal if someone pulls off an upset, not entirely unrealistic, but 0 medals is more likely

Shorttrack: most likely option is 0 medals, 1 is still far from unlikely and 2 would be great

Skeleton: depending on whether or not our NOC is being an asshole, an outsider 

 

Speed skating 
W 500m: 1 medal if everything works out perfect, most likely is 0 medals

W 1000m: 1 medal should be possible, 0 is just as much possible and on a fantastic day 2 is not impossible neither

W 1500m: should be 1 medal, possibly 2. 0 would be disappointing from a Dutch perspective

W 3000m: 1 medal, 0 and 2 is possible as well

W 5000m: not more than 1 medal

W TP: 1 medal if nothing weird happens

W mass start: 0 is the most likely, though 1 is almost just as much possible

 

M 500m: 10-20 medal contenders, so anything from 0-3 is possible. Most realistic would be 1

M 1000m: 2 medals is quite realistic, so is 1. 3 is not impossible neither (albeit with a smaller chance of course), 0 is not very realistic

M 1500m: at least 1 is rather likely, 2 is quite possible as well

M 5000m: should definitely be at least 1 medal, 2 medals would be a small surprise

M 10000m: should definitely be 1 medal, but 2 is pretty likely

M TP: 1 medal if nothing weird happens

M mass start: 0 is the most likely, though 1 is almost just as much possible

 

Which could make for a total of around....15/16 :d

I told it, if we reach the quarterfinals I´ll be more than happy, but the medal is very unlikely even with our new Canadian coach and re-calmed general atmosphere resulting in the end of the Boycott of our 50 best players :old:

Let's see:

 

Luge: 4 - 6 medals

Skeleton: 1 - 2 medals

Bobsleigh: 2 - 5 medals

Ice Hockey: 0 medals

Short Track: 0 medals

Speed Skating: 0 - 3 medals

Figure Skating: 0 - 1 medals

Curling: 0 medals

Freestyle Skiing: 0 - 1 medals

Snowboard: 0 - 2 medals

Alpine Skiing: 0 - 3 medals

Ski Jumping: 1 - 4 medals

Nordic Combined: 2- 4 medals

Cross Country Skiing: 0 - 1 medal

Biathlon: 3 - 9 medals

 

Overall: 13 medals lowest score, 41 medals highest score.

 

Makes an average of 27 medals. :p And now let's hope for the best.

Some questions:

6 medals at most in luge?

2 medals at most in skeleton?

5 medals at most in bob?

Where do you expect a second medal in snowboard, apart from womens parallel slalom?

3 medals in alpine skiing? Did you miss the injuries of Neureuther and Luitz? :d

You are very optimistic to see a chance for a medal in cross-country skiing.

Germany winning 6 medals only in singles (in luge) isn't even impossible (though not highly likely, especially 3 in the men's is not the most expected outcome), I'd say a realistic maximum for Germany in terms of medals there is 9 (if everything works out perfect, but not entirely impossible). If I was a German luge fan, I'd be disappointed with anything less than 6 medals.

I can't answer your questions about bob, luge and skeleton, because I'm not sure what you mean. Too low? Too high?

 

I do not expect a second medal in Snowboard. I would be very happy, if we win one. But the second possibility is Boardercross, men.

 

Alpine Skiing: If Neureuther and Luitz weren't injured, my guess would have been 0 - 5 medals. As it is, I see chances with Rebensburg (two disciplines), men's speed and in the team event. I know that nothing of this is even a very high chance, except maybe Vicky in Giant Slalom, but note that I also mentioned 0 medals as a possibility.

 

I definitely think that we have a chance for a medal in women's team event's in Cross Country.

There's no way Germany will make a sweep in men's luge. I think 7 medals at most could be possible (3 women, 1 men, 2 doubles, 1 luge).

Well like I said, no sweep is of course more likely than a sweep, but it absolutely would not be the biggest surprise ever if Germany does sweep the luge men's podium.

Germany won't sweep any of the luge podiums. This ain't Oberhof.
