I think the thread should be changed to easiest league for 20-year-olds to transition from to AHL. It would be a more fair comparison that way. If we were to compare 20-year-olds, I would say it would go

1. OHL
2. WHL
3. NCAA
4. QMJHL
5. USHL

The OHL, WHL, and NCAA are well-rounded leagues but I don't think the NCAA prepares one for the grind of an 82-game schedule. The QMJHL players generally have a harder time transitioning as many of the players in that league can succeed without a really good defensive game so it is harder for them when they make it to the pros and are no longer the superstar player on the team and the coach asks them to take on a defensive role.
