The Production Line was famous for playing a very aggressive dump and chase game, but I'm not sure how widespread dumping and chasing became afterwards.
Yea, Im not saying it never happened and ofc there were lines specializing on it. What I meant was that it wasnt nearly as widespread as it is now. Most O6 games Ive watched is more about getting over the line and try to get a shot at the goalie and then forecheck.
