I think part of the allure of being a left handed shot is that traditionally, a goaltenders biggest weakness is low stick side, about a foot off the ice... That spot is MUCH easier to hit if you are a lefty...

But when it comes right down to it, I think that the reason that there are more lefties than righties out there just comes down to an odd quirk with natural selection... When I was 3 years old and about ready to start picking up my first stick, nobody ever asked me which way I wanted to shoot and nobody ever told me which way I should shoot... I just picked up a stick and figured out what way felt more comfortable... I'm sure that it's that way with most people...
