Keep in mind that when a player from the USHL gets drafted, they're either on their way to the NCAA or possibly the CHL, as was the case for Miller, Murphy and Biggs this season. Since 2010, about half of the draft picks are also out of the US NTDP (U-18).

I'd put the USHL below all three CHL leagues, but using the college football analogy, it's more FBS to FCS. A more fair comparison would be the USHL vs. the CJHL (Jr. A). A series between the Royal Bank Cup and Clark Cup champions would be cool.
