That's what happend in Finland at least, Mestis has always been kind of crappy, but it became even worse after they closed FEL. Theres a huge gap between the first and second tier in Finland, pretty few players ever come out of that league.
Right now Allsvenskan is working as a feeder league to SEL, a bad Allsvenska= no more place for borderline elitserie players to develop, plus kind of lowers the interest for hockey in places that will have no SEL-team.
Dunno that's just my two cents, maybe you thought it trough better than me.
I agree that we need smaller rinks though
Yes, but i wouldnt mind sacrificing allsvenskan to make SEL better
