Lindros had his head down. Stevens didn't use an elbow or his arms to make a check. It was clean but Lindros put his head down and got clipped by his shoulder. Nothing cowardly about it. Checking someone in the head has always been outlawed but if there is no intent there isn't a penalty and there shouldn't be.
Doc, one important factor you seem to forget is the number of steps taken before making the hit. When you gather speed and then try to take someone's head off with a hit, it matters little to me whether you do it with your shoulder, your forearm or your elbow.
