Perhaps, but I've watched English matches as low as Conference South and been shocked at how much faster the pace was than the American game. The level of skill in MLS is very high--I think the top of the table would hold their own in the mid-table of the elite European leagues--but the pace of play is what bores me to tears. You are correct about the playakers, we have very few domestically.
