Even if from an economic point of view it would make sense for Sweden to increase the chance of having Malmö, Djurgården and the likes in the top league, I think they have it right with the current system.
Having a strong second tier is good for the overall popularity of hockey in the country, as most people live close from a high level team. It's also a good thing for player development, many young players found ice time in the Allsvenskan.
