IMO the only time it's a major benefit is as a defenseman, skaiting backwards. having your stronger hand on the top end, better able to sweep, poke check, deflect shots etc. etc.

Having the stronger hand on top doesn't help much in the way of shooting, stickhandling etc. etc.
I agree with that.

From a defensive standpoint it does make a lot of sense, but as we've discovered {and you said} it doesn't seem to make sense from a shooting or offensive standpoint. That's another reason from my above mentioned opinion.
