They should redefine hits to include whether or not the player actually felt the hit or not... or had any effect on the play.

I believe the stats on hits has gotten extremely diluted over the last few years, and also varies greatly from arena to arena.
The stats on hits hasn't been diluted at all. A hit in 2006-2007 counted as a hit now, and vice versa. The stat itself has just never been a good gauge for toughness or physical play, and trying to throw out some arbitrary guideline for what a "real" hit is isn't going to make the stat any more credible.
