With Krueger, he is actually too good a motivator, where all the players bought in to him and take to heart what Krueger is telling them to do. Look at the totally failing high pressure defensive puck pursuit system, all the dman have been doing it consistently and have all been burnt badly. And they are still motivated to do it game after game!
I think it's not coincidental that Whitney hasn't been the worst defenseman in the last several games despite his skating problem. He looked to me like the only one that's actually hasn't been chasing the puck carrier blindly resulting in bad defensive positioning either because he isn't even quick enough to do it, or, he decided that he's not following the system and kind of play it conservatively.
The ones that got burned by this system the most are the ones that skates the best. And in this order of skating well and getting burnt more... Petry, N. Schultz, Smid, Potter, Fistric, Peckham. I left J. Schultz out because he's super quick and can effectively get in on the puck carrier or can recover after losing position.
Have a look at this next game.
