Can any goalies out there comment? Does that make any sense?
You realize that the "right" way (well not really "right" but the way that makes most sense according to most hockey players/coaches) to shoot in hockey is to have your power hand on top, right? So a natural righty (who writes right-handed and throws right-handed) like myself would shoot "lefty" in hockey with his right hand on top of the stick controlling stick-handling/most other functions.

With that in mind, it actually BENEFITS right-handed goalies if they play goalie normally as opposed to south-paw.
