BUT, it's all personal preference. I switch-hit in baseball and can throw a football left handed or right handed but I am right hand dominate. I shoot right handed because it's comfortable for me. Puckhandling LH... hands of stone. RH and my hands are as soft as a goal against Trevor Kidd.
I think what you said is true mostly. The funny thing about being right handed but shooting lefty is you can have a plenty good slapper, since you'll notice a lot of the power from the slapshot comes from the upper body and shoulder torque of the right side, e.g. the more powerful side for a right-handed person. You can also have a plenty weak wrister. It depends on a really high number of factors, then factor in how much you work out and are willing to practice
