I had trouble with the right side hockey stop also. I nursed it and could do it at slow speeds, but it wasnt perfect by any means. I didnt practice it that much, but now I am able to do it. What I was doing was this 180 turn around and used my right foot to scrape the ice to stop. By doing this I basically got comfertable with my edge on my right foot and I actually think I stop better with my right foot foward now.

I've always understood you want the weight on the outside foot, and inside foot is for balance... ???
