Quality of Hockey Skates

I am from central Europe and was planning to buy a new pair of skates since the frame
of my Bauer X7.0 broke. I had an interesting discussion with the sales manager of the distributor of Bauer equipment in central Europe. He claimed that the quality of Easton, Reebok and CCM skates dropped in the last few years and are far below the quality of Bauer skates.

Now almost every local shop seems to share that opinion. It might be because the prices for Bauer equipment in Europe allow a much higher profit for the shops than any other brand.

Would anyone confirm that there are any significant differences in quality that would be relevant for non professional hockey players?
