I'm not disagreeing with you again, but that's what I hear. As a skater having never played goal, I wouldn't know. With that being said though, I think our definition of 'skating' as a quantifiable skill is different. Tenders would probably never have to do crossovers in-game for example and skaters would probably never have to do those movements in game either.
Hank4Hart understands what I mean I think, and that was the point I'm trying to make in this post. Different skating movements, so I don't think it's accurate to lump them all into 'skating'.
