I guess one way to compare the quality between european leagues is European cup which was official IIHF tournament for league winners. Of course its bit unfair because in USSR most of the talent was packed in one team.

Here is link starting from 1970-1971.

Then there was lot of other team tournaments where many teams from Europe and some NA teams competed. Its hard to say was there real stakes in some of these tournaments or did they take it purely as rehearsal.
