I can see why people would assume that R=R and L=L though.
of course as a mature adult your stronger hand will feel better on the bottom because you will feel like you can derive more power
i played street hockey 10 years ago with 10 or so immigrant kids who all picked up the game late and everyone shot with their dominant hand down 10/10
imo it's likely more proper to shoot with the dominant hand on top even though it may not feel comfortable at first because power will come and your stick handling will be way better
