I almost exclusively skate parallel.

With respect to stability, I would guess that a wider stance is more stable (your center of gravity is lower, you have more room for corrective action and a wider base is generally more stable).

Apart from that, I would say that it is also a question of individual anatomy. People just have tendons of different length and flexibility and you can change only that much with stretching.
