Yes, it is by definition a second rate league. College and Canadian Juniors are first rate, BCHL and USHL are second rate. Pretty much every team in the BCHL/USHL is worse than every team in college and juniors. That only a couple kids from a super-loaded BCHL team are playing D1 hockey proves just that.

BCHL/USHL is where you play if you aren't good enough to play in the Canadian Juniors or college. An occasional player who wins up there by choice should dominate, even on a loaded team.
