some, like the one on stepan, are worse that others...but i've seen avery, prust, and staal all be guilty of these types of hits pretty frequently
While I agree there are plenty of hits from behind these days - I don't I can incriminate those you listed very much with the type of play Crombeen did.
What Crombeen did was that little extra shove with 2 players coming together with a good bit of speed towards the boards. Just enough to knock you off balance. I've been on the receiving end of those a few times over the years.
Stepan would have faired better had Crombeen just hit him instead.
