I would think that the biggest transition would be stopping. In ice hockey, you stop with two feet, and in roller, you have to sort of make a sharp turn with one foot. But, once you have adjusted I think you'll find ice hockey much easier because turns and stops involve much less strength than in roller and you don't have to work the puck in ice, it just glides for you.

I'd say that the best skate under $150 would be some of the CCM Tacks, check em out here... http://hockeymonkey.com/iceskates-ccm-sr.html
