The players are stronger and faster now than they were then.
Concussions weren't an issue, because it was just called "getting your bell rung" Go back and watch some Rock em Sock em videos. Those guys are chicken legging off the ice constantly.

The hits from behind, I don't even know why those became such an epidemic...Just general douchebaggery is my guess. The players these days just don't seem to care as much as the guys back then did.

The dirty play was far worse...Remember, there was only one ref back then, you could get away with so much behind the play.
