We have somewhere around 18-20 teams that would like nothing more than playing in Elitserien, and spots for 12.
Thats why the club economy is utter crap in HA, to even compete for a spot you have to take a big risk. More teams, more spots for juniors and in the end better development spread over the country.
Yeah, those two are major concerns moving forward.
We need to find a way to have a larger number of clubs that are financially strong, hate it when clubs have to fold, like Björklöven just did.
I am not entirely sold on 14 or 16 teams but I fully understand your reasoning.
On the other hand, one could point to a "signifact" gap between SSK/Rögle and the rest of the teams.
