If you want to learn to shoot in a short amount of time, go right. Dominant hand as your bottom hand means a better shot (atleast in the short term).
If you want to be a better stick handler, go left. Dominant hand on the top means you'll have better puck/stick control, while your bottom hand just has to support the stick.
When you control the stick with one hand or to poke check, your top hand is the one in control for when you need to reach, poke check, etc. So if your dominant hand is top, you'll naturally be stronger at it.
I'm right handed, shoot right, trying to see if I can switch to left. As yet, I can't shoot left very well, but my stick handling is naturally just as good or better than when I use a rightie.
