So the playoffs work by high seeds choosing lower seeds?

Also one thing I've been trying to figure out is how the Kvalserien works. The top 3 teams in Allsvenskan get in easy, and then the next three teams compete for the last "wildcard" slot? am I understanding this right?
For the SEL playoffs, yes. Seed one starts, can choose any team 5-8 and so on.

4-7 place SEL2 teams play for the last qualification spot. It used to be a playoff two round bo3 format but for this season it's a home-away group play. 4th place team starts with 4pts, 5th place 3pts, 6th place 2pt, 7th place 1pt. Six games each, 3 pts for win, 2pts for OT/SO, 1 for OTL.
