Most skates will have a different fit throughout the boot. A CCM and a Reebok are wider then a Bauer for example. If you've had problems with the CCMs the Reeboks may not work for you. Your best bet is to go to a place that deals primarily with hockey where you can get a knowledgeable fit. The new Easton skates (EQ series) or the Bauer supremes may be a decent choice for you as they do have a tighter ankle, but make sure you have somebody look at your foot, and try several skates on.
This. Another thing to look at too is perfect heel lock, when you do some lunges with the Reeboks on, your ankle needs to stay locked in completely and not shift up or down.
And regarding the Graf skates, I find that many of their models rely on comfort being a selling point, not fit or support/stiffness.
