I agree, though there is an ebb and flow there. The PK is playing zone. Say Neal starts out on the right circle. Sid cycles around the ice until he eventually gets to that circle. The plan is that his guy from the left circle will become enamored and follow him, leaving the left circle open. Neal shifts over to the left circle while his guy picks up Crosby who just entered, and is now double teamed, thus leaving Neal in his haven.

It's actually a very effective strategy when it works. When it doesn't work, it looks like Neal is doing nothing.
