Its too tough to compare NCAA and CHL, I don't know why people do it.
Its like comparing a Bantam Major team to a Midget Minor team.
I would use this analogy. Both leagues have good players, but definitely more higher end in the CHL. Take one of the top 5/10 Bantam Major AAA teams in the USA. Half the team will end up playing somewhere higher up. Put them against a top 5/10 Midget Minor AA team. 1,2,3 kids from the team may go somewhere higher up.
THe midget minor team (NCAA) should win due to age, size, strength, depth, but the Bantam Major (CHL) team could play with them, and maybe win a few games. THe Bantam team will have more higher end kids, but the age difference is a factor. The Midget Minor team will definitely have a few kids go higher up, but most of the team are just good solid hockey players.
The top Bantam Major kids could do really well against Midget Minors, and the top Midget Minors would destroy Bantam Major.
