Stevens hitted him legally but he knew very well that Lindros was becoming a force in the series and that he was a rocking check away from a carreer-ending concussion.
You can say legal hit but clean hit?
and thats not good for the league, they would be much better with guys like Lindros, Lafontaine, etc
Change the rulebook!
