having players that can get to the puck first and move it out of the zone quickly are how you avoid having too much pressure in your own zone.

There is only a limited amount of room for big, slow, galoots who can't get to the puck first and can't move it out of the zone efficiently. Having too many of these guys traps you in your own zone the whole game, and kills your team's defense and offense.

The one game we beat the Bruins this year we had both Gardiner and Liles in.
Carlyle likes his big, slow dmen. I agree with you. Liles and Gardiner should both be in. I don't see why why need 3 slow dmen in franson, fraser, obyrne all in one game. No more than 2 of them should be in a game at a time. We could really use a speedy top 4 dman with size though. Liles and Gardiner get the short end of the stick with carlyle because of their size and there limited hitting ability.
