Isn't the overriding issue the difference between shooting well and stickhandling the puck well? In other words, I swing a bat right handed, I would never dream of trying left handed. And if I use a golf club it would also be right handed.
So my strong swing would be right handed.
But for handling the puck, especially trying to do something with my hockey stick with only 1 hand (rushing up ice, poke check, stick in lane), I would be completely useless with my left hand. (Which would be the result of using a right handed stick.)
Also, for stick handling with both hands, the top hand is the most important, so all of that leads me (and most right handed people) to be a left handed shooter.
So in the end it really comes down to which deficit are you willing to accept and able to improve: The shot or the stick handling?
At least that's how I think about it.
