Skates and direct the puck to your stick as everyone is saying.

The other thing you can do is bend down far and move your lower hand toward the blade. Depending on where it is you can collect it directly on the forehand and push it foreward

Or

you can let it deflect off the backhand toward the front of you (you do this if the puck is too far behind your back skate.)

As far as optimal position, I try to be open to whatever side the pass is coming from... ie I'm rt handed so on the right wing and pass coming from the left, ie keep my right skate foreward and rotate hips inward. (opposite from other direction)
