My opinion about Hammer isn't that he's not throwing the big hit every now and then.
For me it's the opposite, he's not taking the hits as much as he used to. When he first was with the team the thing I noticed the most was that he was able to take many, many hits and was always super calm about it and always made the right play but now he seems hesitant and worried and tries to clear the puck no matter how much sense it makes (or doesn't, that is).
I see that as the difference. With that being said, the guy was getting pummeled in his first playoffs and then the season. It takes a toll on the body and if I'm him I wouldn't be the same either after a while.
