Common problem: I'll be deep in our own zone, trying to help the D recover the puck. Eventually it'll be chipped up the boards where the winger will be almost standing still. Once he gets it, he's looking for a play, but I'm way to deep in our zone.. so his only outlet is the far winger.. which is a tough play.

It's a tough position.
If I were you, I would work on the reverse. Get the puck and throw it behind the net to the other d man. Have him move it out to the other winger. By that time, you should be able to make a break and give him some support. Also talk to the winger, and if he is stuck in mud at the half boards, tell him to see if he can get his feet moving to push the dman backwards. If you have possession, and he is skating, the dman instinctively should start going back with him.
