If I'm honest, the straps on the pads have always been there to keep the pads attached to my legs, I've never tighten them more than the first notch. For the lowest straps, I used to do the same thing but they have to be a bit tighter so you keep a certain control of the direction of your pads. You don't want your skate facing a way and your pads another.
I know of several NHLers that were like this. They do rotate a lot more easily and you get down to the ice quicker for a butterfly. But it's all a matter of taste.
