oh yeah, sure. with "not good enough for the DEL" i meant "not good enough as foreigner". since the foreigner spots are limited, teams expect them to make a difference. you don't need bottom line foreigners.

Is my compass way off reasoning like this?
nope. i think the idea is right. we will see many more bigger names in lower leagues soon. a lot of players who are still without a contract will have to take huge paycuts. and somehow playing 1st line in allsvenskan isn't that bad. is it me or is the level of the allsvenskan much higher these days than a few years ago? lots of talented prospects and good vets.

btw: how is the TV situation? i saw that two PPV channels show the allsvenskan. both of course only available in sweden.
are there any games in free TV every once in a while? something i can hope to be streamed?

and does s24 really wants 79,- per game??? i would love to see the total destruction of bofors on day 1, but that's way too expensive.
