I guess we are touching two topics right now.
A: How do we improve SEL, especially with the emergance, and big bucks, of KHL?
B: How do we improve Swedish hockey in general?
The answer to A does not have to be the answer to B. It could be, but it is far from a guarantee.
The point och relegating 1-2 teams each year is to improve the chanses for AS teams to advance, thus somewhat leveling the playfield a bit. There is a finite number of years a team, like Leksand, can spend big cash on trying to advance. If that doenst pan out, I see a risk teams overspending to advance, but instead ends up bancrupt.
Of course there are a number of ways to answer both A and B.
Distributing more money to AS and junior hockey is probably a terrific answer to B, but not to A.
