Most of my game relies on my speed and ability to take my turns tighter than other players and continue my crossovers at extreme speeds. If I don't get this sorted out I will look like the worst skater on the squad next month
You'd be surprised how much a change in pitch can mess with your skating. I went from Graf (way foreward) to LS2 (on the heels) and I couldn't skate for 2 weeks. Look into getting lifts or ge tthe skate profiled.
