How did you decide left or right stick handed?

Wanna know somethin funny? I write with my right hand yet am a right handed shooter. I also notice that I have excelled very fast for a player of only a little over a year and the control I feel I have with my left hand at top is strong, quick, and very soft which works perfectly for me at the top of my stick. I can play great defense with just my left hand on the stick, I can handle the puck with just one hand, heck sometimes I can even have a nice lil pass with just one hand(if the person isnt too far away hah).
My point is, there is no real competitive advantage choosing to shoot left if you write right also. Ya, you posted scientific facts about dominate hands, good job. Does that take in to account the possibly millions of variables that go into what makes a player better/more comfortable with certain side sticks? Nope.
Just from your personal experiences of watching C league players does not give you the right to state all this as facts to why its SUPERIOR to choose your way.
Whatever a player is comfortable with is what the player should go with. Now WHY a player is comfortable that way, can have a million different answers.
