This is the point I am trying to make. Playing limited minutes on a fourth line isn't as developing for a player as playing on a scoring line in Allsvenskan (with PP-time). This and that Allsvenskan really works as a development league for SEL (and that theres plenty of player that could do pretty well in SEL in that league). Compare how things look in Finland (Mestis is nowhere near as succesful at pumping out players for SM-liiga). Often players from Allsvenskan need a year or so of transition time, there is players that have great succes in their first year in SEL, but often it takes a couple of seasons for the players to peak.
