Indeed the SEL is widely considered Europe's 2nd strongest league in Europe (3rd worldwide), but my experience is that there really isn't that big of an overall difference between the NLA and the SEL in the grand scheme of things. The NLA is definately the 3rd best league in Europe - even better than what Finnland currently has up and running.
Of course, the NLA is a tick stronger financially than any league other than the NHL and KHL, which often allows them to have first crack at the better foreign players who can't quite make it in or to the NHL, but don't necessarily want to be playing in Russia.
