There's many kinds of mid curves:

Iginla - really flat, short, and neutral faced
Sakic - deeper, longer, and open
Coffey - really, really deep and neutral faced
Weight - really flat, long, and twists open at the heel

None of those really play like anything else.

I don't want to bicker, so maybe it's just our definitions are different. I define a curve as mid if that's where the curve starts. Some define it as where most of the curve is. The Vanek often gets classified as a heel because that where it opens up...

Here's Hossa's pro curve, it's a lot of the same, it's a toe curve that twists open at the mid heel.
