Well, it depends on how other countries react to playing the North American teams. Presumably they would have improved much faster, making it quite difficult to guess. If things had remained exactly as they were, USSR would have been a very legitimate threat along with Czechoslovakia by the 1964 Olympics. Canadian amateur teams still gave European national teams some trouble in the early 1960s.
USA would also have been a threat during Frank Brimsek's prime, as he was quite possibly the best goaltender in the world and arguably could have stolen a game from Canada.
