Look at those clips. No stretchers. The players are helped to their feet and off the ice by other players in most of them.

The play wasn't even stopped in some of them, and prolly very few were called for penalties either.
Yup. In fact, I'd say the real change is the awareness of hits like this and the effects they can cause being more prevalent with today's teams/players/fans/media. Hits like Stevens' happened all the time 15 years ago. The players barely missed shifts after getting their bell rung.
