Just by looking at the rosters... if he gets more ice-time with Allsvenskan, I guess it would be best he stay there.
The difference between the bottom teams in SEL and the top teams in Allsvenskan is not that big. As a whole the difference is much much bigger though.
The players you mentioned are just playing for their hometown teams. Forsberg is still young enough to get alot out of playing in Allsvenskan. Since SEL teams have a gentlemens agreement (well, sort of) to not add lockout players to their rosters, the others did not really have any other choice if they wanted to play in Sweden. Not that that would have made much of a difference since they's probably still want to help out their home team.
If that makes any sense.
