I play the off wing as well. If you can cut to the middle goalies at the lower levels have a really hard time going side to side, so you usually open up some pretty enormous holes just by making the goalie slide across.
Also, I've spent the last 2+ years working to get some lift on my backhand. Don't ignore your backhand! It's one of the easier shots to learn since you don't have to get a lot of zip on it, it's just a matter of learning to get it up. It's deadly on breakaways since the goalies are used to 95% of the skaters at my level shooting forehand.
