I am patient. I don't Carlyle is though.
Kadri succeeded because they gave him some room to run with. Gardiner is neither going to re-learn to play an NHL game in the pressbox, or earn a coach's trust being a healthy scratch.
To me, the equation is this:
Gardiner and his terrible defense and good offense and upside > Kostka's slightly better defense, lack of any offense and no upside. But Carlyle seems to value that slight bit more of reliability in Kostka.
