Good points and I completely agree. The goal in skating is to move forward. Your stride moves to the side simply out of necessity to utilize the edge of your skate blade.

Skating is physics and nothing more. The fastest skaters will be the ones that execute as close as possible to the optimum technique. Relative to their conditioning of course. Without the legs you'll be a slow player with great technique.
