that being said (IGM) , it is no surprise that he was one of the Manchester bound players. Tripp was signed to provide a dimension to the Monarchs that they were sorely lacking after they dumped Healey. A goal scorer who is not a small, finesse player. Tripp will see a LOT of ice time with the Monarchs, whereas if he had stayed in LA, would have been a healthy scratch or a 4th line guy. The casual fan sees a guy's name in the box score and assumes he's won a job. Those that truly think "big picture" understand how John Tripp's piece of the puzzle fits. I love the guy's attitude, and his work ethic, but the best thing for both the Kings and John Tripp is for him to be a leader in Manchester, as opposed to a benchwarmer in LA.
