It's all physics:
former roller playing ice now. Try to think of the ice as a totally foreign surface than what you're use to and things will go much smoothly.
The best way to start is to do a half snowplow... skate forward and make sure both edges are flat on the ice and that blades are not angled in or out (that seems to be the biggest problem) and turn your foot inward while keeping both edges on the ice... magically your skate will start making snow and you slow down.
Once you get the physics of why it works... it makes hockey stops SO much easier.
