good skating to me is like getting better MPG. Your leg strength is horsepower. your endurance is the gas tank. your technique is your mileage (and handling too to a certain "degree" ) so if you work on technique you're gonna get a better 45-60 second shift out of that player. If the technique is poor, they are gassed out by second 30 of their shift and just coasting about. vroom
