What were sports games like before they put in the off-side rule?

Particularly, but not limited to The National Hockey League? Do you have a video of gameplay without the hockey off-side rule?

In elementary school soccer, before we had the offside rule, we called the people who stay next to the goalie a “goal suck”

The NHL offside rule came into being in 1929, long before video was invented.

Prior to that, general rules were that an offensive player could not be ahead of the puck, similar to rugby players having to be behind the ball.
