Same with analysis. Has he ever had a take on something that was a bit unconventional that actually made you pause and say "hmmm, never thought of it like that before, he's got a point." The opposite examples are numerous. As has been said before, he is perfect for the traffic cop role he currently has.
Dale appears to be an expert on hockey because other than the former players (Pederson, etc.), the vast majority of radio/TV media in Boston know less than **** about the NHL. Dale actually knows and can identify players on other teams (not just the superstars), and can name some of the Bruins prospects. That qualifies him as a savant in this market.
