Some like Gorges can adapt, but others like Spacek never could. It was a shame about Spacek cuz I really think that was a huge problem with his mostly underwhelming tenure in Montreal, the few times he did get a chance to play on his natural LD side he looked a lot stronger.
Well, we all (or a lot of us) would like to see Emelin play with Markov (Russian duo), but...somew might thinkg the veteran (markov) shojuld try the right side so that Emelin gets the left side,etc.... unless Emelin could adapt quickly.
