Not obviously referring to the play as the follow up by him refers to more professional organisations in the Allsvenskan. I think it is unlikely that he thinks that the Allsvenskan is better in general than SM-liiga when it comes to the level of play.
But I would say that the organisations in Allsvenskan is not worse in general than the organisations in SEL. There are a heap of former SEL teams in Allsvenskan who got proved high standard of organisations (e.g. Leksand, Mora, Malmö and Södertälje). How that compares to the organisations in SM-liiga I do not know. I would not be very surprised that SEL/Allsvenskan in general (who is about the same level organisation wise) has an edge against SM-liiga teams in general when it comes to organisations.
