Never occurred to me that they might choose to use a kayak paddle with a solo canoe. Guess I'm just more of a traditionalist than I realized. (discussion of the merits of paddle types not required)

Prism may well be lighter and an open boat is generally easier to load and unload and carry on portages, but as he said I believe the hull shape in the water is the same so given the same type of paddle with each craft the portaging may become more important than the on water differences.
