If you want good quality for hockey inline, hit up any local hockey shop like ice level, or hockey shop in surrey.

If you are looking for good fitness inline replacement wheel, hit up a local sportchek, and ask them to order the OEM wheels from the manufacture (either K2 or Rollerblade) they are usually better quality than the after market stuff.

Or hit up a local sportchek and ask if they have any mismatch or older styles of inlines on sale. (They often do, and they sell for $49.99), and you can just take the wheels and bearings off of them.

thanks. i havent inlined in over 10 years and just bought a rollerblade crossfire 100

but the 100mm wheels are too much for me and i want to use the inlines for outdoor as well as beginner roller hockey

should i drop to 78mm-80mm? my buddy said my wheels are so spaced out that it wont be too much of a difference if i go with smaller wheels

Crossfire 100 will NOT be good for rollerhockey at all.
Your friend is right in that the chassie is MUCH longer than a standard hockey chassie, and is designed for speed/stability not agility.
