I just got new skates. Do I need to have them sharpened?

I only crossgrind if really have to, and I can usually get away without one.
Crossgrinding every skate is ridiculous. What about little Johnny that gets his skates sharpened twice a week...you crossgrind them every time he comes in, and he'll be looking for new skates/steel in two months.
