Felger knows a little about hockey, on a par with the average fan, but he's much more interested in the attendent drama because that gets people talking and increases his ratings (e.g. the Chara/Pacioretty incident, 911 and all). He doesn't care to educate himself about the game because he has his own little niche and he's comfy in it.
I'd still rather listen to him, or any other knowledgeless DB than to hear tapes of drunks being interviewed on the street after a game.
