You've got some serious goggles on to be calling this headhunting. Stantons head doesn't move, Kassian's elbow is down... comparing it to Downie's flying elbow, that's almost as bad as the guy who compared it to Torres.

Upon rewatching a few more times, it doesn't even look like he leaves his feet at all until after contact. 100% clean hit.

You'll also clearly see that the elbow is down and against his body...

And... now I understand why the goggles. Just another anti-Canuck homer.

I won't derail this thread any further. I don't see this discussion getting any further.
