Depends on who you ask, alot of teams (like the Red Wings) have let their Swedish prospects develop in the SEL and then bring them over directly to the NHL.

Sometimes a little AHL time if the big club is stacked or if just for a little adjustment to the North American game.. But on the whole, I'd consider the SEL to be a step above the AHL.
