In my opinion, with being experienced in juniors across the country(spare the NAHL, which I have no connections to) It goes as follows...
USHL - Clear cut #1 in terms of talent concentration and talent skill. I don't think it's a well organized league at all, but it seems to attract the best players, so by default, it's the best.
NAHL - Best Organized league in the country in terms of actual league personnel. I honestly wish the NAHL folks were running the USHL. A lot of good talent in the league, spread pretty thin however since the NAHL has a LOT of teams...
EJHL - About as much talent, concentrated as the NAHL. The league just has a few teams and isn't well organized. You can look by NCAA D1 commitments divided by number of players for a fair shake comparison.
AJHL - It's a league on the rise, but has a LONG way to go. I like the way it's structured, but the top players are still in the EJHL on the East Coast.
MJHL - Essentially a feeder for the AJHL from what I know.
