For me the main difference isn't how good the top teams are relative to the SEL bottom teams. It's how good the league depth has become. Not many years ago some games were just laughers for the top teams. That's not the case anymore. The league has a pretty lucrative TV deal which has helped tremendously.

The locked-out players have raised the quality further and it helps the league to have DIF, Leksand and Malmö -- teams with over 5k average attendance.

I've wondered this myself for the last three games. He deserved promotion to the first line, and got demoted to the third line. His production has declined after that, I'd say he's only played about 12-13 minutes/game lately. Makes no sense.
