There are many different schools of thought in this area. Here are a couple....
First, is to play in the highest league possible (without being completely dominated). The train of thought is playing against tougher completion will be the best for development.
Second, is to play in a league where you will be the best, or one of the best, players on your team/league. The train of thought here is typically scouts (tier III, tier II, USHL, D-3, D-1, etc) only focus on the best players and being the best player in the league/on your team is the fastest way to move up the league ladder.
This article points towards option 2.
I personally prefer the first option, but with all things it goes on a case by case basis.
Here is a good thread debating two of the options I mentioned above.
