That is a tricky area your going into.

The Swedish Elite league is extremely diluted now. Teams like Djurgården, Södertälje, and Malmo(with a new huge arena) just to name a few are playing in the Allsvenskan. Not to mention that Eliteserien werent letting locked out players play, while Allsvenskan had NHL stars like Anze Kopitar for example. There is a major shift of interest therefore, in Sweden towards that league.
So when you imply that the KHL got dropped for the second division, you may get some people confused.

Im pretty sure that the average attendance of the Eliteserien will dwindle below NLA, DEL and even KHL
