Well Grossmann still is rather immobile. Especially turning and such moves (my english is failing my a little right now).
Also lefties are far more trained in playing their off-side than righties are. I don't know the exact number, but there are a lot more lefties than righties, hence some have to play on the right which means they are used to do it.
What was the last pair of two right-handed D other than Jones-Weber (which was only formed because the Preds have more RHD than LHD and Josi got hurt)? Exactly.
