I will aknowledge that the hit was a bit late.

Haven't really looked at the Lindros hit, so I won't analyze that one for now.
A little late? More like 5 seconds after Kariya dished the puck. The point is, that so many people here vilify Cooke, but Steven's hits were pretty much on par with his. Eerily similar in style, eerily similar in ending players careers. The Lindros hit was all elbow to the head. The point is, he wasn't clean, they just didn't call them like they do now.
