Yes, it's 5 guys standing in the neutral zone, I don't care how they're positioned. They don't force the play to one side or the other, they just stand there. Even the Devils trap was more aggressive than that. I've seen that kind of thing in roller and dec hockey. To me it seems more lazy than ingenious.
