I've played in two of the leagues so I'll give you a break down...
ICE 604 is more of a beginner league. If you are a good hockey player and can skate, you will simply dominate the league. It doesn't matter which tier you play, you will dominate. (my friend and I won a tier 2 championship on our own last year).
ASHL/PLANET ICE you will find much better competition if you are a good hockey player. I played in the 1st division last year (spring) and was shocked at how good some guys were. Played against a couple of guys that played professionally in Europe. A couple WHL/BCHL players and a guy from the NCAA.
With Planetice, I wasn't impressed with their spring schedule at all. You would have 2 weeks off and then a cluster of games (3 games 4 days kind of thing). I've been told that they are much better for the winter league though.
ICE604 winter, you will play VERY late at night (11pm is a very common start time). It's cheaper because they book the non premium ice times. They play out of the 8-rinks in Burnaby.
