I am assuming you have played in one of the leagues you listed? Most imports at this level have played major junior or college D1 and came from the ECHL/CHL (central) and plenty have had AHL call ups. Here's the league page on elite prospects if you want to look at some of the players
Other leagues I would say are similar, slightly worse, or slightly better than this level are:
French Ligue Magnus
Italy Serie A
To clarify, I didn't bother listing the Mestis or VHL, since they have very few imports.
