I agree, milk is not the best before a work out as milk makes mucus and phlegm which are not good for moving and breathing. Also, milk has a lot of fat which is not good for digestion especially when shaken up from a skate. And most importantly, lactose (milk sugar) leads to lactic acid which is muscle break down and not good. Keep dry, think balance. Protein + carbs (both simple and complex) + vitamins/minerals. I'd recommend something with as many grains as you can find (whole wheat is good but flax or 12 grain is better). The bagel with peanut butter is good (I always take a table spoon of PB straight up before hockey, works wonders) take some OJ with calcium and an apple for the car ride if you want.
