I definitely understand the need of a canon on the blue line, but every time I've seen someone mention getting a new defenseman...they always stipulate it has to be right handed. Is that actually a deal breaker or just to mix it up with our glut of lefties?

So, probably a stupid question, and feel free to merge it wherever it may fit, but it's been bugging me lately and I wasn't really sure where else to ask.
Is it knob or noob? To be honest the hand on a PP is significant, it's not much different than ones writing hand. That said, in hockey most guys can go either way in the same way they must use their skates to stop either way. To excel in hockey both sides should be as equal as possible so in the end it should not be a game breaker.

I have played some ice hockey so I know the the significance of having both sides work equally ...
