As others have mentioned, the NHL's hit stats are wildly inconsistent and essentially useless.
I agree with this sentiment. There are stats like corsi (or plus minus for that matter.) That some people will apply beyond the scope of what they are. But when they are looked at for what they are they are accurate and have uses.
But hits, because there is no unifying standard are useless and inaccurate.
