I think that at some point, unless the NHL actually cleans up it's act, that there is going to be a clear indication that injuries and ones like concussions are era related, certainly hitting is.

There is quite simply more collisions and at higher speeds than there ever has been and unless that's taken into account the old "he's a baindaid boy" thing really doesn't apply the same way as you are suggesting.
