Aleut and (west) greenland...?

Would there be differences in technique when using an aleut or a west greenland type of paddle?

That is, would the same person use these two kind of paddles with a differing stroke? Any two people naturally having different preferences.

reason I ask is the difference in blade profile would indicate different behaviour, but is this necessarily so? The tilt seems to "absorb" so many differences, maybe it absorbs this one as well?
