I don't have a preference for either wing... though I've admittedly played more LW than RW. If I lived in Russia, the opposite might be true.

On the left wing I have my forehand facing the pass receivers. I can also receive passes on my forehand, and I can go backhand a lot easier.

On the right wing I can cut to the net on my strong skating side, and I have a better angle for the forehand shot.

So I'm going to make a wild statement and say that playing the off-wing benefits shooters, while playing the regular wing benefits passers.
