I would contend that the top 3-4 teams in the Allsvenskan are better than some AHL teams. (And yeh, some of the bottom teams absolutely suck!)

I imagine the top team could give the Calder cup champs a run for their money some years.

Guys like Timander, Gabriel Karlsson, Prestberg, Ryno, Johansson, Filip Forsberg and Moe (and Raffl ofc) were on the Leksands team last year, all are pretty damn good players who have been proven in the SHL, NHL or AHL. Probably closer to AHL standard (though not as good overall) than ECHL standard.

Nice article though and sorry for nitpicking on a tiny point based on a matter of opinion!
