    So is Dale Arnold new to Hockey? And Mowers? Who does he have pictures of?

    He (Arnold) sure sounds like it.  The semi-regular mistakes are unprofessional and tonight, when he referred to Ference as the Bruins' ASSISTANT Captain at least twice, made me wonder if he could call Katheryn and maybe get some pointers on how to talk hockey.  Maybe the B's could find a suitable... alternate? 

    The comments I was hearing that he was such a hockey acumen improvment over Tappen sounds like gender based BS after listening to this lightweight.

    Bruins' OT is unwatchable now... compounded by that hdeous train wreck that was on tonight (Mowers?) What is he... 12?  Couldn't think of anything to say other than to say "frustration" 57 times.  Terriible, terrible show now.

    If Dale Arnold is an upgrade over KT, you sure have me fooled. This guy lobs the so called " softballs " all night. He's a tough, no nonsense, asks the hard questions guy ? Like i said, i'm fooled again. Bring back KT, oh yeah , she's at the NHL network.

    For some reason it really bothers Soxfan when people use the (commonly accepted in Canada) term assistant as opposed to alternate captain.

    Dale does know hockey but the show is very stale, no strong personality (wether you agree with him or not) Milbury and nothing to catch your eyes  i miss KT.

    Ya Dez, I always do a double take when somebody says "Alternate".  Doesn't sound right to me.  Kinda like the whole "Offsides" vs "Offside".  Offsides make me go offside.

    Mark Mowers, 2 reasons why he shouldn't be there.
    1) Born in Decatur Georgia
    2) Followed Lewis from Red Wings to Boston.

    If you close your eyes, I think that Dale Arnold is better than Tappen.  He is actually pretty knowledgeable and he talked hockey in Boston before it was popular to talk hockey.  I like him.  Nothing wrong with what he said about Ference either.

    Plus, his outfits are more revealing than Tappan's were ;)

    Mowers is a dink.

    I don't think anyone will ever be worse than ex-ref Paul Stewart (the random penalty machine), but Mowers is doing all he can to take the worst overall spot.

    This picture of him alone should get him kicked out of broadcasting

    I like Dale. I can't recall Mowers ever saying something insightful. I actually turned to my wife the other night and said "I can't believe I wish Gord Kluzak was on"...that says all you need to know about Mowers.

    On another note, I've seen Dr. Rex, the broadcaster twice now. You would think he'd be a natural...he's not. He's got a long long way to go as far as his broadcasting skills are concerned.

    Flecth - I agree. Dale absolutely knows hockey and is a pro at his job. If watching a hockey post game show is where people go to look at attractive women folk then they need to get a life.

    Some of KT's outfits looked like she was dressed as an extra for some Victorian Era movie. I half expected her to show up in a hoop skirt some day. She probably would have 'cept it didn't fit under the desk. Did you ever notice she dressed even more conservatively when Milbury was on with her? Mike may not smack kids around but I suspect he liked to gawk at her boobage ;)

    Mowers is a dink. lol

    Mark "lawn" Mowers must have come cheap, and Kluzak and Pedersen can't make it every game. Mowers likely makes a quarter of what Mad Mike was making.

    Ha. That's not the first time I have heard the theory that Tappan's Amish wardrobe may have been a reaction to working with Milbury.  

    Maybe it was NESN's idea.  Like, 'let's keep Milbury from gawking at the Tappan twins so he can stay focused on hockey'...

    Mowers looks like Charlie Moore's little brother.  Any chance NESN could move him to the Mad Fisherman's show instead?

    It is just refreshing to hear "b*o*o*bs" and "Milbury" in a sentence with different context

    I miss KT but watch her lots of mornings on NHL. Nobody there seems upset by her lack of "hockey knowledge." Trading her for Billy Jaffe and pairing him with Arnold is the worst sports trade since Thornton for the San Jose flotsam and jetsam. Listening to Jaffe makes me yearn for Eric Frede.

    Kathryn Tappen ? really ?  Okay fine she's a pretty blond with personality but was not the best hockey analyst. I preferr her on SportsDesk.
    Dale Arnold is the complete opposite. Ugly blond with no personality and okay with analysing a game.

    SoxFan all you got is "Assistant captain " ?

    Maybe we should get Charlie Moore on.  He's got an opinion about everything else -- why not hockey?

    I'm tired of Dale- he tries too hard to be cute and clever, like he wants to be a slick broadcaster.  He knows his hockey, but never pushed for it when he did his show with Holly, who avoided hockey talk like the plague.

    I liked KT because she was an honest fan of the game, and knows her stuff.

    I don't watch the show at all now.

    Re: So is Dale Arnold new to Hockey? And Mowers? Who does he have pictures of?

    I think the job of the "host", Dale or KT, is to competently tee-up the studio analysts for their input.  Honestly, I don't care what Dale or KT thought of the play in the period when former players are there to provide their opinions. 

    I think KT became really good at this and has done nice job on NHL Network.  Tom Caron was also really good at this, as was Tom Larson.  This is a new role for Dale, hopefully he works his way into it soon because it is painful now.  

    Mowers has been a terrible analyst.  He is a curious hire as he played 1 year on an awful Bruins team.  He is the poster-boy for the Dave Lewis era.  He has no established fan-base here, and he is bringing zero to the broadcast.  His highlight this year was dressing up as an elf.  Maybe he grows into it, but it sure looks like he has a massive hill to climb.  That said, I am sure looking forward to some good Petr Tenkrat and Jason York stories.

    Billy Jaffe also annoys me.  He comes across as pretty knowledgeable, but is such a wind bag.  I could do without him.
