I can play both wings just fine but I always find when I play LW I'm more defensively conscious, and with RW I don't have to worry about being 3rd person back all the time.

I thought in the past coaches use to lean towards putting speedier, offensive type players on RW and a two way LW to offset the RW. Thats probably changed now or it was just what I was exposed to in my hockey playing experience.

My coaches were always sort of conservative, some were fine with me a lefty playing RW and some were adamant I play LW. I am more comfortable on RW though, I have a phobia of having people off to my right. I always sit on the farthest right possible, in meetings, or in school.
