While it appears the NAHL has gone downhill somewhat since the USHL went "Tier 1" a few years ago, I'm not sure if you can compare it to the lower Canadian A Leagues.
OPJHL sqads were routinely trounced, and I mean pretty harshly, at NAHL tournaments. At the Compuware Showcase I saw some scores that were downright embarassing for the OPJHL squads.
I don't think the NAHL is on par with the BCHL or AJHL now, but they're on average a step up from the OPJHL.
That being said, it has been a few years since I've seen NAHL teams. From what I understand, they have taken a step back over the past few seasons. You'll have a couple of very strong teams (ie Texas), and then it drops off.
Just my 2 cents.
