Right hand or left hand is not the key, quickness is the key in the NHL.
Per your last sentence, after the comma is correct. Does it really matter left of right hand? For a first or second liner, no not really, if you're good enough someone will take you, handedness be damned. But as you said, quickness is key, and part of quickness is being in the right position, and getting the puck in the right position, with the right angles, the handedness does play a factor in your ability to be quick. Like has been said earlier in this thread, going from backhand to forehand to get the right angle, while it may take a split second, does have an affect.
