Skills equivalent, that is another story.
I guess that's what counts.

I don't want to overhype it.
But I'm saying SEL-2 is not as bad as it comes across.
I just think Wikstrand is being overhyped. He wasn't particularly noticeable at the rookie camp, so the conclusion should be:

(a) SEL-2 is a pretty crap league, rather than;

(b) Wikstrand has improved substantially since June

Anyway I'm not surprised people are essentially concluding (b).
