All in all, due to the large distances there are many clubs in the northern part that are just satisfied with playing in D2 or D3 because it would quite simply just be too expensive to get promoted.
Yeah, there are a couple of good teams. But they can't put it up against the D1 teams. I look at the D2 as a development for young players that need the experience of senior hockey. For players that need to play against a little bigger, faster and stronger players D2 is good. Talking about junior players now
