Kostka and Gardiner's games are more interchangeable, though, as they are both offensive defencemen.
We know Carlyle likes his rough-and-tumble defencemen. You put Gardiner and Kostka in a line-up together and suddenly we too many of the same defenceman on the team. Holzer provides physicality and PK abilities that Kostka does not. He rounds out our defence better and plays more of a Carlyle-style.
