I'll often see roller convert guys at drop-in dekeing through players at 2mph because they haven't made the transition in their skating. It usually works until the defensemen get over the usual "it's drop in, I don't want to lean on anyone" mentality and play the body instead of fishing for the puck. It makes sense, since the lower contact levels in roller allow guys to have more time with the puck than in ice hockey, so it's not unreasonable to expect them to be more used to carrying the puck instead of making a quick pass and getting open again.
