the guy has played for years in the best league in the world. IMO that is still a valuable experience. It doesn't means that makes him automatically a good commentator, but you can't bash him on the fact that he was 3rd/4th liner.
Superstars doesn't make automatically good commentators either.

Who do you want? Bouchard?, he would be a fit, but according to your standards, he was no more then a 7th defensmen pilon,.

If Bouchard stepped in and continuously bashed André Markov and Roland Hamrlik and praised Francis unconditionally because he also was at best a 6th defenseman in this league, sure I'd get as annoyed as I am with Brunet.

Danny Dubé never played to the level Benoit Brunet played but anyone who believes that Dubé cannot analyse and describe hockey situations better than Brunet is not hearing the same things I am. How about Pierre McGuire? Did he play many years in the NHL? No, but his excitement and energy makes the game more exciting. So you know what you can do with your "standards".
