I recently went from a high level of roller to ice. What I can tell you is that ice was a lot "stickier" to stop on. Meaning in roller I would throw a lot more of my weight into a stop, but with ice I had to be much more gentle on my edges. I'd imagine it would be an opposite feeling for you. You'll want to put more weight on your turns.
Don't listen to that 'donna either. High level players stick to their positions and play a solid team game. We also have net presence and the puck will feel really light to you. Whether it is ice or sport court, everybody takes losing seriously.
I didn't play with shoulders or elbows and only got a few zingers in the 15 years that I played. I would start out with them though as you'll likely fall backwards a few times.
