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,
This I agree with.
and trying to throw out some arbitrary guideline for what a "real" hit is isn't going to make the stat any more credible.
it was more or less a joke... but really, some of the stats, especially for hits I have noticed this year for the Ducks (and their opponents) have been rediculous.
I love the color Magneta. Makes me feel tough.
