Being an American, people playing stick side left are the minority. I just happened to play with a friend who was played stick side left, so when we joined a league, he liked RW so I took LW.

Even though I don't play with him any longer, I still love the shooting options playing LW as a right side shooter gives me. I am very comfortable with my backhand, so passes tend to not be a problem, and I usually have the option of putting the pass on either side of the defender.

About the only downside is playing the right defensive position, which leads to me having to chip the puck back into the zone on my backhand which can be a bit awkward, and I have had a fair share of pucks escape me because of this.
