But how many successful juniors and D-1 players are there who employ "attacking the net" as a primary strategy? Maybe less than 5% of the entire landscape? At the professional level, it's even less than that.

I'm with GuyClinch on this. It is nothing but romanticism. We all would love nothing more than to see net play come back into the game. But those days are over until some other factor in the game changes which requires it to come back.
This, very ignorant.
