Of course, this isn't set in stone- people do different things on both sides of the border.
They have been giving away free sticks on HTM. and they range from $55 and up with the good models in the $99. I bought a SK 200 100 flex P2(Bauer P92) for $55. May be something to look into for your store.

If you call the guy, he has a whole bunch of things that aren't on his site, but he may not answer right away. I left an email and he called me back later that night. Said they were getting some crazy call volumes and inquiries from the Radio spots on Home Ice and HTM.

I would be interested in analyzing how NHL players (and MLB players who grew up playing hockey) bat and shoot a puck.. I think you would see a lot of guys doing the same thing
There was a discussion on this a while ago, but it always goes in circles. I play golf/Baseball righty, but Lefty in hockey. My three brothers are all righty's. I almost chalked it up to when (age) you start, but no real scientific data.
