If you want move up to SM-liiga, you must first play long playoffs and win the Mestis (=our Allsvenskan).

And if you somehow are able to win the series, then you must buy the SM-liiga licence which costs about million euros. That is impossible to do. Our Mestis doesnt even have a tv deal.
So be happy how great system you guys have. We will never get new teams in our top league. I think that Allsvenskan is getting better and better every year. Soon it starts stealing players from SM-liiga
. You have done many things right in your hockey.
Don't be, IMO it should be scrapped in favour of direct promotion/demotion.
If a team play plays so well that it wins Allsvenskan, it have earned the right of being promoted in the
same way as the last team in Elitserien have earned themselves a demotion.
I just think that Kvalserien is just to bring excitement rather then being a fair series.
