Watch Alex Ovechkin skate, he almost looks like he is sitting in a chair mid-stride. He keeps his weight under his legs and keeps his center of gravity low.
This will help you change directions quicker, it will allow you to skate faster, it will allow you to play the puck easier.
I do bend my knees. I've been playing for a while and have always used a stick at my chin in skates. Anything shorter, my body isn't used to it. It's probably that I've developed my game around my stick length so any changes cause discomfort.
