Holzer's game fits Carlyle system better, and Leafs had to see what he could do..

Carlyle benched JM Liles for over a month, because he to like Gardiner is not what he is looking for from his defensemen where defense is the #1 focus.

Gardiner excelled in Wilson's pond hockey system, but now must adapt to a new coach and new system and play a game more conducive to coaches preference to earn playing time.
