All my life, ever since I was 6-7 years old, I always wondered why hockey players are not being trained to skate by former Olympic speed skaters and figure skaters.
If I ever ran a team, I would hire 1 speed skater and 1 figure skater to train my team. It's different type of skating, but there are many things that professional skaters can train hockey players.
Notice that European players often will use their feet in a soccer-like move to do something useful. Same can be with getting training from professional skaters.
Boyle's "Great Success" shows that this is clearly the case.
