Just from observing most NHL teams, however, I've noticed the wings cover their respective defensemen, and don't go chasing forwards behind the net. If a forward is going to go chasing opposition forwards around the net it's usually going to be the C (I laugh at the thought of Gagner winning a puck battle along the boards in the D-zone)

I'm not going to pretend I know what Krueger's "system" is - but I think it's pretty apparent what the standard expectations in terms of own-zone play are for each player.
