Modano doesn't use a Drury, his curve is a very slight mid that's not open and has a square toe.

Heatley, Parise, Sedin, Carter, Briere, Roy, Zetterberg, Thornton, tons of defensemen, all use similar curves. Some are more or less open, some are more kinked or straighter at the heel, but it's very popular.

Really for me the only downside is that shots and passes can go high if you don't follow through properly, so you have to be mindful. I've been forcing myself to use it as much as possible to get in good habits. And I suppose toe drags aren't as good, but I'm more of a shoulder/head fake kind of guy.
