New, I had a similar thought. Here's that chart:
The big thing I can think of is, if there was extension of the leg, with an upright torso, you wouldn't push back but push down, which would lead you to "bobbing".
I think maybe if you were speed skating, you would go with the most amount of forward lean:
But with carrying the puck, you'd be a little more upright:
Either way that conventional advice of "bend your knees and sit your butt down" just doesn't make sense in the absence of hip position.
