In some cases you are absolutely correct. In some others, you could no be more wrong. It comes down to the individual player. For example, any time TO tried to play Schenn on the other side, he looked lost. Some guys can adjust easily, some cannot. It's not the best generality, but it is absolutely true in some cases.
