I can't shoot as hard with a lefty stick as with a righty stick because of that.
When I was younger, I used to feel like most of the power came from my bottom hand, but with advice I got as I got older, I realized that the bulk of the power really should be coming from the top hand. Ever since I adjusted the way I shoot so that the top hand is the power hand, my shot improved 10 fold.
If you take 50 shots against the boards over and over, your top hand arm should be more sore than your bottom hand arm.
