I mean, who plays the halfboards is kind of independent of being a "center" or "wing." Richards and Leino work off the right side as left handed shots, whereas Briere, Carter, and Giroux work off the left side because they're right handed shots.
We've also been running an umbrella-type PP unit the last few years... so you have the one net man (Knuble/Hartnell) and then the roamer who slides in and out of the holes or the two-man game with whichever side you're working the puck from down low... and the high slot position comes out of the rotation from the wall (or the opposite side top guy sliding in to look for the shot off the pass).
