Tripp Tracy is a horrible color guy.
John is awesome though! One of the best play by play guys out there.

I like Tripp I have heard a lot of the other Color analysts and to me none are better than Tripp. End of story.

Last season during the Penguins series I bumped into the VERSUS announcers at a restaurant the day between games 3/4. Because Forslund had been announcing some games for VERSUS I told them I hoped they wouldn't steal him. They said they were trying to. One of them (I think Keith Jones) said he and Forslund were good friends, and he/ the network both wanted him to join the team full time. I told them they could have Tripp Tracey instead. And the whole table laughed, as if Tripp's commentary is some inside joke in the announcer community. I don't think he's well respected.
That being said, for the most part I like Tripp, but yeah, he does get annoying from time to time. I don't think he's ever pulling for the other however, and I do agree that all things considered, he's actually a lot more enjoyable than some of the other announcers. The color guys for the Caps/Thrashers/Lighting are not as enjoyable as Tripp is in my opinion. Tripp does give some unique insights, and seems a lot more enthusiastic than the other guys, who are dry and bland, and don't give very inspiring analysis.

FINALLY THE TRUTH TOLD ABOUT TRIPPER. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH EVERY WORD BY TARHEEL 1983. HE IS A SORE LOSER BECAUSE HE WASN'T GOOD ENOUGH TO PLAY WITH THE BIG BOYS. SO HE IS WHAT HE IS!!!!

Since we'll be changing the players, lets change the color announcer too. Tripp gets on many fans nerves and since he never player big time hockey, really doesn't know the game. If he knew the game, he would have made it to the show and would not say the dumb things he tends to say. A change would be good for all. If Tripp is so darn good, he'll hook up with another club straight away.
