There's a quality difference between teams and players in J20 Elit, but overall I'd say you have to be a pretty developed hockey player to play there. It's divided into North, South, East, West divisions where I'd rank them in order East(pretty much the greater Stockholm area), South, West, North. If any other junior league in Europe is better than J20 Elit other than SuperElit, that would probably be Finnish Jr. A.
A benefit with J20 Elit would be the smooth stepping stone into men's hockey, those clubs usually have teams in division 1 or 2, in some cases even Allsvenskan. You'll be spotted by bigger clubs if you do well.
In the end it's all about how good you are, you will probably get a very good grasp of that when you attend your try-outs. Good luck!
