Fit is the most important part of buying new skates. Once you have discovered what fits you best, then its what do you want to do on skates. Based on your description you have the fit down. Now for the decision. The Astro 50 is a very good skate, but slanted more towards the beginning to intermediate skater, while the Crossfire 90 is more for the strong intermediate to advanced skater.
Given your background, going to larger wheels will not bother you much. They will be a little harder to manuever, but with practice you will be able to do everything on the larger wheels that you can currently do with your hockey skates.
My recommendation is to go for the Crossfire 90. While the Astro 50 would be a little bit easier to transition to, you will very quickly be outskating it.
