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
Very nice quote (post #111)! Where were you when I was arguing the same?!!!
Eminger is 1st round pick, 4th overall, if I remember correctly. 27 is just a beginning of the prime. He should be given a chance over any rookie, still. Next year could be different.
