Gonna be a tight race this year. Djurgården is probably the strongest team but then it becomes more difficult. I would really like to see Leksand back, all their fans deserve a SEL team.

LiveeviL 03-13-2012 05:18 AM

Pretty much this ^

Hockeyfrilla 03-13-2012 05:43 AM

DIF & Timrå.

Everlasting 03-13-2012 05:52 AM

I'm hoping for Timrå and Leksand but it will most likely be Timrå and Djurgården.

Systemfel 03-13-2012 08:41 AM

Both SEL teams will defend their berths.

zecke26 03-13-2012 09:00 AM

i don't care what fans and clubs deserve. but i know that elitserien deserves örebro! :yo::D

in conny we trust!

I think Timrå will have a tough one. Either clinching the SEL for the next season with a couple of points or the opposite. DIF is safe, or at least should be.

KRM 03-13-2012 10:21 AM

Would be awesome to see Örebro qualify.

At the expense of Djurgården? Why not :)

How awsum would it be if Bofors and Örebro qualified? Pretty awsum I'd say.

Maybe a fun thought, but bad for the league.

Ferros 03-13-2012 06:40 PM

I'm hoping for Djurgården and Leksand/Örebro. Bofors certainly would be interesting as well. I think Timrå needs to take at least a few years in Allsvenskan and sort out everything around the hockey and it's also nice with some change.

Somehow I think that Timrå is going to make it anyway, I'm a bit more worried about Djurgården, their team seems to be so mentally weak so I'm not sure that they can handle the pressure. If they get a good start I think that they will make it but I have a harder time seeing Djurgården recover from a bad start than Timrå would.

Either way it's going to be really interesting to follow Kvalserien again, just like it always is. :)

Teus 03-15-2012 02:00 PM

The SEL teams are in for a rough ride like always. Think Djurgården will get through and maybe it's time for Leksand.

HC Bienne 03-15-2012 02:15 PM

i vote for rogle. we(ehc biel) play those guys back in September. to bad there is not Mälmo. my favorite swedish team.

Hockeyfrilla 03-15-2012 02:47 PM

Rögle ties it 2-2

EDIT: Rögle makes 3-2

crazy game, 3-4 now

Ciccarelli 03-15-2012 03:10 PM

Kvalserien is always such a treat to follow, way more interesting than the Elitserien play-offs. To bad we don't have anything like this in Finland (as it would be a waste of time since no Mestis team would ever stand a chance to make it to the SM-liiga...).

Allsvenskan teams, yet again, giving the Elitserien teams a run for their money. The games are actually surprisingly even considering the fact how much weaker those Allsvenskan teams are on paper. For example, is there even single one player on Bofors' roster that would make Timrå's roster? Yeah, probably not. Still they're battling neck to neck. Awesome.

Hockeyfrilla 03-15-2012 03:10 PM

No way DIF will survive kvalserien. Allsvenskan 12/13

Vikke 03-15-2012 03:14 PM

No ****in' heart whatsoever. All season long. So sick of it.

WayneBruce 03-15-2012 03:44 PM

Very impressed by Rögle and how they battled back after that first goal. They looked like a Superelit-team in the first few minutes of the game.

It's a sign of that the paper teams doesn't matter, theres plenty of Allsvenskan-players that would do well in Elitserien. Looking at Djurgården vs Rögle today, I would take players like Ted Brithén, Alexander Johansson and Daniel Sondell in a heatbeat over guys like Jonas Almtorp, John Norman and Mattias Carlsson for my Djurgården.

Hockeyfrilla 03-15-2012 03:50 PM

What u guys think of Hampus Lindholm? Looked great out there.

YARR123 03-15-2012 03:54 PM

What's a good webpage to follow the kvalserien (preferably in english but swedish will do too I guess)? Interesting stuff, I wish Mestis was as good a league as Allsvenskan, there's no point having the same qualification system here in Finland because Mestis is so weak compared to SM-liiga...

Some other questions:
1. How big are the teams in this years kvalserien? (Fanbase, juniorsystem, economy)
2. What are the average attendances of the Allsvenskan teams qualifying?
3. From the above posts I've gathered Örebro and Bofors are the little guys, do they have potential to grow into big Elitserien organizations if they qualify? What about Rögle or Leksand?

I tried searching the net for answers but with my swedish skills it is very difficult.
