Agree with Wally. Most everyone on this board is well informed about hockey, the NHL and the Bruins. It's the casual fan, or the one who always watches but never ventures out to see a game, that Arnold and Kluzak are performing for.
I think targeting the show towards the casual fan is a poor idea - casual fans don't tune in 30 minutes early for a pre-game show, and don't stick around after for the post-game show. A lot of them don't even care that much about the intermission periods ... casual fans don't want to see slow-mo breakdowns of how a play was set up, IMHO.

Plus, even if the casuals are the target audience, having stale/not-that-entertaining hosts isn't going to encourage them to tune in. And I think that at this point, Arnold & Kluzak are both stale and dull.
