I believe it's preference, but I like em loose.
There's a lot of factors going in, I have pretty wide feet, so even my wide Reeboks fit snug in the footbed, I do not really need to tighten the laces to have a snug feel. I lace up loose, just enough so that the skate hugs my foot. Then I pull pretty tight on the skatelock to keep my heels locked (can't do it with anything else, only with skatelock), then VERY loose on the top, I do like a deep kneebend.
I know a lot of guys who lace painfully tight though, and they're awesome skaters.
