ET doesn't mean imho nothing. Best way to compare these leagues would be during playoffs/spring time when teams are in their best form. Most of ET games are played in beginning of season (when teams are just learning their game) and if you lose too many then you are basically out. In every ET game you don't even see the best lineups on the ice. ET is not very good indicator. In SM-Liiga you can see every team developing their game during the season and the best ones (and healthiest) usually succeeds in the the spring.

Boumedienne have always said good about the SM-Liiga playoffs...maybe he compared the level in that world. Also a former swedish KHL/Elitserien defender who played in HIFK said SM-Liiga is better. But these are just individual opinions. No need to get offended. And like I said comparing is hard. I'd say pretty close 50-50 normally and SM-Liiga with a edge this season.
