The puck not sliding quite as well(though current pucks/floors aren't far off) actually made my hands better on ice. It also makes you better if you play defense 'cause you can't just put your shoulder into a guy's chest when the play is one-on-one.
Agree 100%. Our years playing each are pretty spot on as well.
Ice has made me a better inline player, and inline has made me a better ice player. That being said, yes play roller hockey this summer.
Really no point in starting this debate tho imo, just best to leave this one at to each his own....
