The players are stronger and faster now than they were then.
Dirty play and concussions? Surely you are aware this isn't something new. I will agree with your last statement however. Going back 10-20 years ago though if a guy took a run at your star player he would have to answer for it. Whether it's right or wrong is debatable but there was some degree of protection in having an enforcer/goon on the bench.
