The MLD draft teams, while not filled with the very best in the world, are certainly something of all-star teams still - definitely your average MLD forward or defenseman was well above average in the NHL at some point in his career.

So no, it's not similar to playing against players who, for the most part, weren't good enough to make it to the NHL at all.
