Bad way to figure it out. Most of the time with a broom or mop, your top hand is holding the broom thumb up. Do you hold your hockey stick with your thumb on top? To completely differant motions between sweeping and playing hockey.

If you are trying to figure it out with a kid, best thing to do is give him a flat blade and let him play with it for an hour. He'll figure out which hand works better himself.

As for moving from right to left or vise verse, yes it can be done. The real question is do can you devote the time to relearning. Remember the first time you tried puck handling probably didn't go well. But after practice you got better. Same thin applies to the oppisate grip, the problem comes down to you say screw it I'm better with the other hand and giving up.
