I hear people say that but I don't think it's true. I think that playing with people who are at a lower level than you gives you a chance to try things you wouldn't normally do, such as skate with the puck a bit or make a deke. It's why young NHLers often get sent down to develop against guys they'll dominate.
That said, you certainly don't want to only do that. You've got to continually challenge yourself to get better at all, but I think there are benefits to sometimes playing down a level.
