The Drury and Sakic play similar; you'll want to close the blade face and cup the puck then lean into shots. The Kane is very different; you typically want to play it with the blade pretty much flat on the ice (textbook technique I guess).
Really? I've been using a P106 (open heel with more mid curve and less wedge) for the longest time and a P92 before that and I found that they play differently. I couldn't (and I've seen lesser skilled shooters with the same problem) easily prevent the puck from wobbling on shots or long passes. Also would you not shoot with the puck closer to the heel for the Drury and mid-blade for the Sakic as a general rule of thumb?

But then again, you've probably have had more experience than me. Did you notice any 'wobbling' so to speak?
