Personally I think the top teams from each league would be pretty close.
The Canadian university teams do play college teams preseason and usually get beaten by NCAA teams
Also, the NCAA is the best amateur league in the world because the leagues you listed aren't amateur leagues. They are professional because the players get paid.
The CHL teams have higher talent but NCAA may have more depth. But if you want to classify the CHL has "professional" because they get $44 dollars a week , then NCAA is best amatuer league. But CHL is by all means an amateur league
