inline hockey goalie skate question

This season will be my first season in net for roller hockey.
Just wondering, do you, a roller hockey goalie, use indoor or outdoor wheels in your skate? Indoor being 72/76A wheels, and outdoor being 82/84A wheels.

I heard that if you want to slide, then use outdoor wheels. But how much sliding is there in roller hockey?

Question 2: do you think player skates can hold up for goalie use? I know about having more protection is goalie skate boots yadayada, but durability wise... are goalie skate chassis rivets as durable as player skate rivets?

Anyone tried using player skates in net and have any experiences to share?

i've played goalie before for roller and you def want indoor wheels. it's easier to turn into your stances from left to right with stickier wheels in my opinion. i also find that when you're in your crouch, your stance isn't as stable with outdoor wheels as the more pressure you put on your inside heels the more your legs slide apart. (if that makes sense) . as for using player skates it's fine. but if you want to be lower to the ground you can invest in some goalie wheels which are smaller then player wheels so your five hole isnt as big.
