I've been following Hockeyallsvenskan closely for a couple of years now, since Malmö is stuck there. It's a very good league and gets better every year. Nowadays it's not a league you will simply go in and dominate, because you have done well in a higher league. You have to adjust to the playing style etc as well, just like with players going from Elitserien to SM-Liiga, AHL etc. The league probably sneaks into the top 10 in the World.
But no, overall it's not as good as SM-Liiga. There are probably some Hockeyallsvenskan teams that would be able to do alright in SM-Liiga, but SM-Liiga for example got a bigger depth on high-end talent.
