The problem is with Lundin, he's crouched low, so where are you going to try and hit him? Z doesn't leave his feet until after the hit. Furthermore it looks like Z turned and Lundin got hit with Z's back. What is Z suppose to do in that situation? He's committed to the hit and can't abandon it without doing more serious damage (see the Hall hit). It's not even a shoulder check. It's a full bodied check. It's an unfortunate hit but so was the Coyle hit. And that principal point of contact was Stajan's head.
