I would urge anyone who wants to play and be useful, let alone successful, at any league level to be able to stop on both sides instinctively, and instantly. Do the blueline to blueline drills, whatever it takes. Waiting one season to get skilled at doing so will make you a much more effective player.
I also agree with this. It shouldn't stop you from getting into it, but on the same note I wouldn't suggest settling on a lack of certain abilities. Practice practice practice.
