    I’m always interested in how lineups shape up due to handedness.

    I thought it would make for a fun thread.

    You get to change the handedness of one player on your team.

    Who and why?

    ...

    :edmonton

    Leon Draisaitl

    Obviously a great player and a great fit on any team. If he’s right handed with his shot and skill opposite McDavid on our powerplay, I think it takes it up a notch. He’s also excellent on the draw and having him as a RH faceoff option only increases his intangibles.

    Vasilevskiy back to catching right, would confuse shooters.

    Uhh... what?

    Drai's left-handed shot screws the shit out of defensive scheme's and goalies.

    ESPECIALLY on the PP

    Drai's backhand pass is by far the best in the league.

    I'd want Orlov to be right handed, that way he'd never have to play with Carlson, as they are awful together.

    Make Caufield a Lefty, our 4 best wingers are all righties and having a left handed trigger man would help out our Powerplay immensely.

    I'll take a coach that follows the left hand path, thanks.

    Make either Ehlers or Connor a right shot so we can line them up on either side of the powerplay

    Dmitry Orlov to right shooting. He is a dynamic offensive player who has almost no role on the Caps pp because that position has to be a right shot

    Left or Right is not nearly as important for forwards as it is for defenders. (For some reason we usually record LW, RW, and D, it should be W, LD, and RD)

    For the Jackets I'd have Zach Werenski go RH because it's a heck of a lot easier to find a decent middle pair LD than it is to find an RD replacement. And it's quicker to have RH forwards get teed up by a RH point man, and the Jackets best shooters are all RH (Atkinson, Bjorkstrand, Laine, Roslovic, etc...).

    George Parros would make more sense left since he is never right.

    How difficult do you think it would be for a right handed QB to transition to a left handed QB during the offseason?

    Yup, he's left-handed also otherwise, but finding equipment in juniors in Russia was too difficult and so he had to switch.

    I think I’d prefer McDavid as a Righty to be honest. I’m happy with him just the way he is though haha

    Would he be allowed to switch mid game? Just to piss everyone off?

    Very much this. The Habs are an anomaly right now, the vast majority of our fwds are right handed, with Danault and Kotkaniemi being the main exceptions.
