I'd agree playing against people who are a lot better for you is pretty bad for development. It can help positioning but that's about it, and what is that when you barely touch the puck anyways. Going off my friend and in-law, you should play with people at your level. You should take hockey classes for adults, and join a beer league at the lowest division which is usually designed for people who took up the sport as an adult, this way you see a lot of the puck and can gradually develop skill. Just remember to have fun and develop your skating skills.
