Grip Question

Maybe this is something I missed. Your bottom hand on the stick, does your thumb go around the shaft, or on top of it?

I ask because I've been doing around the stick, and keeping a "death grip" on things as I play D and am often in stick battles in front of the net. Yet when I practice slapshots, the index finger of my bottom hand was becoming very sore after just a few pucks, as it seemed to be taking the full force of the impact.

When I switched to my thumb on top of the shaft, more of the force of the shot hit my palm, and the pain seemed to be less. This leads me to believe this is the correct way. Is this true?
