What has hockey come to if you can't crush a guy crossing the blue-line + Cutting to the middle with his head down? Mike Lundin was asking to get hit there. Scott Stevens would have killed that guy.



You're right. Other than the dirty hit part, it was a clean hit.

Precisely the type of hit they are trying to get rid of. He could have lined him up and rammed his shoulder into his chest and knocked the wind out of him. Instead he left his feet and now there is the possibility that Lundin could be out for a while or may never be the same player again.
