Gunanr/Percy are great positional guys, Gardiner is more of a pure offensive specialist(with quick feet to help fix mistakes), Phaneuf-Rielly is a fantastic 1st pairing.

Problem here is only Phaneuf really hits, you need another hitter there.
I feel like Burke is trying to move our defense away from Schenn/Komi like Dmen and more towards Blacker/Finn type d-man. Blacker can throw the body around and from what I've seen of Finn, he's no slouch when it comes to physicality.... Not a Schenn-type or Komisarek-type Dman, but 2 way Dmen that can play physically.

A Gardiner-Finn pairing seems like a less skilled Phaneuf-Rielly pairing to me...
