I disagree. While I know that on our board, the emphasis on sides RE: D-men is overstated, it's definitely not easier for defenseman to switch sides than it is for forwards. The only thing tougher than a D-man playing on the side he's not used to is a winger converting to center.
Wing to wing is easy, center to wing is easy. RD to LD and W to C are tough, even for NHLers
