I was and think a lot of people are the opposite, starting out you might bomb some chances playing forward, but your mistakes are far more noticeable playing defence if you get burned and give up goals, scoring chances or shots.
I prefer to play up front in terms of my style, but am happy playing defence. I'm comfortable and pretty competent skating backwards and passing the puck, plus there's generally more ice time at the rear.
I'd have thought most teams wouldn't want anyone playing defence that can't skate backwards or handle the puck, let alone having guys that can't who are putting their hand up to play there.
