In my experience, two things come to mind. Defense and foot movement are key. It's much easier to back check on skates than it is on feet, simply because you can glide on skates, meanwhile you have to keep moving your feet on the floor. I also find it more difficult to shoot on the move while you're running as oppose to skating, again because you have to keep your feet moving.

I can't really help you for moves, as I have hands of stone. If you're good with your feet, I find that foot to blade moves work fairly well, especially while cycling down low. Even I can pull these off. Another thing to do that's much easier to do on feet is to plant yourself in front of the net and screen the goalie. It's much harder to move someone with their feet planted as opposed to someone on skates.
