And Kings, I've seen plenty of people say (people as well as articles) that Canada is about 70% left-handed in hockey while the US is about 70% right-handed. Seems to me that since hockey is rarely a first sport for anyone in the States, everyone seems to think you play the same as other swinging sports (namely baseball and golf). Once you play for a short while I doubt it matters, you'll be just as good either way with practice.
sure technique is a big part of taking a shot but standing still and shooting pucks almost all the power is generated from your lower wrist and shoulder. i can't see any reason for your top hand to be the dominant one? how difficult really is it to hold a stick?
