Playing hockey will give you some insight into the game, and not playing it could leave some people with the wrong idea, but overall I don't find it makes that big a difference when it comes to being an NHL fan. Remember that even some NHL players are/were anti-fighting, not sure of any current players who've come out and said it but Mike Bossy has been pretty outspoken against fighting before.
Therefore you never played seriously organized, competitive, coached hockey. So why would you expect it to enhance your understanding of the game? A bunch of guys getting together to play shinny isn't going to suddenly give you new insight into the game of hockey. Repeatedly working on breakout drills, PK drills, etc. will (can).
