I'm a righty, I started with a straight blade as a kid, and naturally put my right hand on top. Forget the broom analogy - if you were to try and knock an apple out of a tree with a stick, which hand would you use? That should be your top hand on your hockey stick (think pokecheck).
I didn't pick up a baseball bat until many years after I started playing hockey and it never dawned on me to bat anything but lefty. Golf, many years after that, again lefty. Probably should be playing righty, but after years and years of hockey, just feels too weird.
Interestingly, I once played on a hockey team on which we didn't have a single right shot. Twenty guys, no right shot. Kinda problematic...
