The Lieutenants have a notoriously uncomfortable break-in period. The pain you described is pretty much consistent with what I experienced when I first bought the skates. Baking helps a bit, but mine were still incredibly stiff until I had been on them for about two weeks (probably 6-8 hours of skate time if I had to estimate). I know that you were looking for advice other than just "skate until they're comfortable," but that's pretty much the only thing I can recommend since you've already baked them and had the boots punched out. You could possibly wear a different pair of skates during games, and then go to pick-up/public skate with the LTs. I do encourage you to try to battle through the break-in process though, because afterwards they are terrific skates.
