Do right-handed shooters play left wing?

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.
