Don't think that new expensive skates are going to make you really fast. First you have to be fast to begin with. Proper skating form, strong legs, all that stuff. If you have that, then yes, light skates will help. I think the main thing about lighter skates is that you don't get fatigued as quickly because you are carrying less weight on your feet.
