He's not able to do that anymore. Could you not see that whenever he'd try to rush the puck up the ice, the opponents would close in on him and he'd lose the puck?

The dump and chase was used the first year of Gomez in MTL, only difference is that the opponents let Gomez rush the puck from end to end and once the book was out on him, he never really adjusted. And that strategy was pretty much Gomez's game throughout his career.
