They do so enough when they play the PP since that is the better side to shoot from. They just need to be smarter when clearing their own zone or have a really competent back hand.

found this insightful tidbit
If a projected 7:th d-man, Eminger, "take" the spot from a rookie, maybe it's a indication of that the rookie isn't ready for full time play at NHL level?
