I've never seen a skate break down in this area due to drilling. I've seen it break down in the area around the rivets more often. If you're really worried about that then you should get your rivets replaced more often.
I never said it would actually break down nor that I was worried it would. All I meant was that pros don't need to care if their skates wear down prematurely since they can afford to change skates a few times a year, before they have a chance to break down, unlike common folk like us who hope that our skates will last at least 2 or 3 years. So to base what we should do on what pros do to their equipment is pretty irrelevant.
