Avtsin is confirmed byshooting....

On a video that Chomsky provided at the dev. camp, you see him as a left hand shot while he's a righty.

While a right handed Defenseman is a hot commodity you simply dont play on the left side...

I'm concerned about not having righties, but i would be ABSOLUTLY afraid to have no lefties, it's a whole different problem imo.
I get what you mean, even if you get past the whole comfort and position factor, you'll still have some problems. McCabe played the right side a lot as a lefty (with Kaberle & Leetch), and cause he had to use his backhand a lot he had his fair share of giveaways and clearing mishaps.

You guys always see chances that a guy could have scored if he shot the other way right? If he didn't have to waste an extra second getting it on his forehand or corralling the puck. Same thing for D-men.

If anything, I think Yannick Weber is going to get a spot on the team if no changes are made between now and training camp.

Actually that was Conboy.

To the OP.

Carle, Subban, Weber,O'byrne and Fischer. All Righties. I wouldn't worry too much about that.

So, is Avtsin Bisexual, or shoots from both sides?

I do worry about this a little bit.

Remember Stephane Robidas? He had a decent rookie year in montreal, but the following year, they put him to the other side of the ice, and he was in contention for the green jacket (for worst plus minus) that year. Now, he is included on the list for team canada olympic candidates.

Clearly, the move from one side to the other side can impact certain players greatly.
