    You need to to seek out more sticktime. If that means traveling further than you normally would to get to a rink that has it, then do so. If that means badgering the (geographically-close-to-you) rinks that don't have much sticktime to schedule more of it, then do so.

    Public skates are better than nothing, I guess. But skate in your full hockey gear (minus a stick, as they won't let you bring that out = liability issues), including helmet and mouth guard. If you're going to push your skating boundaries, you can't be afraid to fall, and full hockey gear (including helmet and mouth guard) is critical to eliminating that fear.

    can you skate backwards on roller? if you can't get on the ice, you can at least practice on some inlines. then when you get on the ice, it's pretty much the same thing with blades instead of wheels. just a little adjustment.

I thought maybe there were some specific things I could do when I'm not on the ice to help speed up that development.
    if you cant get alot of ice time id recomend getting a affordable pair of inline skates with outdoor wheels and practice on a basketball court or something along those lines

    You're like a fat person that's trying to find a short-cut to lose weight. You just don't diet and take those diet pills. You get your ass to the gym 4 or 5 times a week. In this case, to the ice rink 4 or 5 times a week. DO IT, MAN!
    those diet pills with no diet and minimal excercise (our games on sundays) work great for me haha
