But as you say, that only matters to people who are really trying to maximize their play for a specific goal. The average player will not be hurt by roller hockey, and will likely build more skills such as stickhandling, shooting, and passing. That isn't even considering the extra resistance of roller skating which will build leg muscle strength. Also, it can give a nice tan.
