Those who want to stay in one piece stopped being a treat that attracts goons (LeCavalier, Ovechkin, Heatley , Thornton and many more) The end result - the product on the ice - is a boring struggle that is mixed with some random violence. It is not a sport at all, just hard work.
What does Crosby & Lindros have to do with your argument? Lindros was injured because he had a bad habit of skating with his head down & Crosby is the victim of...I don't know, bad luck?

Players have been getting hurt in this sport for a long time. Way before the increased emphasis on 'systems' came along.
