Heriocs at the beginning of an expansion are hard. Peeps point at wrath and say it was easy mode from the start it was not(loken, Utgarde Pinnacle gauntlet, azjol nerub 3 group pull before Krik'thir). The real difference was the gating and the difficulty of getting a group together in bc. It was a nightmare unless you were in a good guild. Even then guilds had cliques that stuck together and unless you could get into 1 you had to spend 2 hours spamming chat to find a group then have 2 peeps fly to the dungeon and summon everyone there and you were stuck with what you got. Of course you also had to have at least 1 person have a key or have a rogue with you(if his lock picking was high enough). Then of course did DBM even exist? I used the default UI to tank, heal, and dps. Totems had a large aggro range and unless you were a pally group pulls sucked. If you were a tree druid you walked along at a leisurely 50% speed. Then of course the sheer prevalence of resources we have now, anyone remember Allakhazam back in BC? Gear is much easier to get now. Heroics are still heroic but they feel that way for a shorter duration. Mechanically speaking heroics then and now are very similar......... except shattered halls that place was hell :D.
