There have been a billion threads on this. Basically, it will prevent you from getting a good knee bend, but will give you more support. It won't cut off blood unless you don it horribly wrong. It will break down your tendon guards, but if you don't mind taking pucks and slashes on your Achilles tendon, it's okay to let those die. You wouldn't be able to wrap your laces if they fall off though.

Tape around the ankle will help prevent the guards from breaking down, and will give you the same stiffening effect.

However, the best solution is to just get stiffer skates.
