Seen from abroad, the situation in Sweden looks very good. Having a strong second tier allows for good opportunities for player development and brings high level hockey (and thus interest for the sport) all around the country. I would love it if in Switzerland we had 5 or 6 teams trying to get promoted every year (we only have one, it doesn't make the NLB very exciting if you don't actively root for a team).

I can see why people would like to see teams such as Malmö or Djurgården in Eliteserien, but even with a 14 teams league they wouldn't have made it anyway.

Just my foreign two cents (or two kronor)
