And it's also about the ability to receive the pass in the defensive zone and easily make a breakout pass on the forehand. "Not trying to be an ass, but if you've played hockey, you should be able to understand and visualize the concept."

Also, setting up a guy to bomb a 1 timer very rarely happens off the rush, especially when our guy with the 1-timer weapon is also the guy that is carrying the puck for his line at least 75% of the time. In fact, the more likely "1 timer" off a rush is just the cross crease pass where the goal scorer just redirects/ramps up the pass. In that situation, it's much better to be a righty on the right side/lefty on the left side. He's set up on the left for bombing 1 timers on the power play...where they're most likely to occur.
