Forsberg is one of Leksand's best players, if not the best. He wouldn't get that ice time in most SEL teams. To be honest Leksand isn't really any worse than the worst SEL teams, biggest difference between SEL and SEL-2 is that the best SEL teams are way better than the best SEL-2 teams, and the worst SEL teams are way better than the worst SEL-2 teams.
The last 3-4 SEL teams and the 4-5 best SEL-2 teams are about the same quality.
I agree with everything but the difference in style of hockey is quite big between the leagues. SEL-2 is a faster and more offense-minded league than the SEL. Young players can concentrate on developing their offensive game there, lack of defensive awareness will only result in very little icetime in the SEL.
