Lappierre also has the same problem, i mean what the **** is wrong with those guys. Can't they lay a great hit just once?
Actually the NHL is pretty stingy with hits and blocked shots. There will be games where it seems Komisarek will push or jam other players over 15 times but he'll walk away with 5-6 hits. I don't think that Dandenault ever scared a soul with his hits...but if the NHL recorded it; its that there was definite contact.

Also Lapierre's game isn't to get a huge hit as much as get under the opponent's skin with little hits and comments. Most pests are like that, look at Sean Avery, primo pest, but he's not exactly a huge hitter.
