If you have a really smooth and fluid skating technique you might look like you're light on your skates when you're actually really digging into the ice, getting the maximum power from your stride. Loud crunching noises aren't necessarily a sign of a powerful stride, but rather a waste of power from an inefficient stride. Whatever energy is creating the sound is taken away from the thrust that you can generate.
