Going wide on the right side gave me passing options on my forehand and let me see the ice. Doing the same on LW was brutal and I always felt forced to try to skate into a log jam of traffic. I didn't have this kind of issue flipping from one D to the other. Only real change, to me, was how you hold a puck in along the boards in the offensive zone. Not sure how other players feel on this, that's just my experience.
Well, it depends on whether you shoot right or left and what your style of play is, but is there a difference from a lefty on the left side from a righty on the right?
