So, just to follow up, I took my first shot at D this week and definitely got into it. I found that with my size I was able to keep the crease cleared out pretty well, and guys just stopped venturing into the middle very often, trying to work the edges more. There was a fair amount of contact, a few elbows, etc but no complaints from anyone. I did unintentionally cross check a guy and ended up on my ass for it, but no complaints, just hockey.

It seems that the combination of a bit of pushing, crowding them and a lot of stick lift was the most effective. Now if I could just skate worth a damn and handle those rushes a bit better I think I would be ok.
