Ice Skates, need your advice.

I've just started playing ice hockey at the age of 45. I know a late start. A buddy gave me a pair of CCM 1052's, the guys on the team say they may be a little to stiff for me, plus you can tell that the runners have been replaced you can see the old holes. I have some problems with the right skate pronating and being on the inside edge. So I'm hoping you guys can give me some advice on trying to find the right skate, one that's maybe not to stiff but still stable enough for a guy just starting out. Money isn't really a problem, well it is if my wife finds out so would like to keep it somewhat reasonable $125-$200. Been checking the normal websites hockeygiant/1800faceoff and hockeymonkey but they don't say much about the stiffness of the skate or I'm not knowledgeable enough to read between the lines.
