Aaaand of course the fact that the SM-Liiga has 14 teams while there are only 12 teams in the Elitserien. Drop two of the bottom teams from SM-Liiga (SaiPa & Pelicans/TPS) and the cap would be much smaller between the top teams and bottom teams.
The player movement between SM-Liiga and Elitserien seems to have changed direction. Too lazy to check it but I think in the couple of past years ther have been more guys moving to SM-liiga from Elitserien than the other way..?
This pre-season transactions between the two leagues (from the top of my head)
SM-Liiga -> Elitserien
Elitserien -> SM-Liiga
Well well well, wouldn't you take a look at that. I might have forgotten a couple of names but not more than that..
