It's a tradeoff. Yeah, you will get more power on your shot if you shoot dominant hand on bottom. You also put your dominant eye over the puck giving you better aim. But dominant hand on top, you get more control and your dominant eye is up over the ice and you can see the ice better for passing. Or for a more modern comparison, Ovechkin shoots dominant hand low, Crosby Dominant hand top.

Really, this has been discussed a billion times before on here. We don't really need another debate. Either way is correct.

There is no right way or wrong way though. But dominant hand on top is MUCH more common among the pro ranks. But guys like Mario and Bossy had dominant hand on bottom. Guys like Gretzky had dominant hand on top for comparison.
