Recording when a player steps on and off the ice is not as subjective as recording a "hit". BTW, it is clear from your post that you don't know how the NHL defines a "hit". It involves more than body contact.

If you don't know what a "hit" is (according to their definition), how can you say they are not counting it properly?
Show me where TKA, GVA, HIts etc are defined to exacting degrees and with rigorous rink to rink standardization involved.

Any research I have looked at on the matter point out how much variance there is in the stats reporting from one rink to another.

Hockey stats, a large portion of them, are so much garbage. This not being baseball which is easily quantified.
