not the point. any newb will tell you snug will make your feet sore or pain a bit at first.

as for technique, comfortable isn't the point of skating. hockey skating technique promotes speed, stability, maneuverability. if you choose to skate comfortably over proper technique, you are missing out on performance. similarly to how hard you skate. comfortably doesn't cut it at any level. hmmm... maybe alumni games.
