I too though have not seen many though around the arena. I agree. I think it has to do a lot with the quiet nature Dan has to his game. If you don't notice him on any given night...he's had a great game. On nights you notice him it's likely going to be for a mistake or two...
Maybe I've seen you once, if so, you would be the only one haha. But as far as Hammer being "positively unnoticeable", I agree. He's kinda like a ref. More you notice him, worse it is. If you don't notice him he's doing his job.
One thing I haven't seen pointed out though that I always thought he was pretty good at was floating accurate wristers towards the net from the blue line. He doesn't intend to score, he just does a good job throwing the puck at the net for a deflection, rebound, or the occasional goal. And he brought me one of my favorite moments in Preds history....for about 2 minutes until we choked it away.

Come to think of it, I'm sure gonna miss the kid.
