I can not imagine that swedish league can challange it, especially if they lose its best players for NHL, KHL.. because they will, it is reality, sad reality for swedish hockey from my point of view. I accept another point of view as well.
If the budget is true then SEL can already not challenge it, because 10mil euro is 2x the average budget of SEL teams, with only 1 team being slightly above it. Odd that SEL has any good players and KHL has very few teams better than the SEL teams.
