Allsvenskan is better than you think... There's five teams down there that have been in the SEL the past seven years. His team, Sodertalje, are a strong candidate to advance to the SEL, and could very well beat Norfolk in a best of seven series. There's a fair share of former NHL'ers and AHL'ers, and plenty of former SEL players in the league. And unlike in North America, they aren't all there because they aren't good enough for the SEL.
You can just look at Djurgarden... They were in the SEL last year, and now they are struggeling in Allsvenskan (their coach just stepped down). Players on the team: Gabriel Landeskog (9 points in 11 games), Michael Holmqvist (6 points in 20 games), Jimmie Olvestad (6 points in 19 games), Douglas Murray (2 points in 11 games), Patric Hornqvist (1 point in 2 games). All current or former NHL'ers. Fowler should produce good numbers, especially with Read and Hagelin going so well... But if he doesn't 'tear it up', you shouldn't be dissapointed.
