Adam Burish: Dive of the season?
 
Maybe the camera angles make it look worse than it was, but this looks really bad.

It was hilarious :laugh:

I don't want to get too ahead of myself here, but maybe even dive of the decade?

Sharks always play like that, trying to get 5on3s and score freebies

Setogucci and thornton was hilarious in the playoffs a few years ago

Silfverberg Snipes 03-23-2013 04:18 PM

Haha, Kesler-esque indeed.

MattyMo35 03-23-2013 04:18 PM

That's hilarious.

I can't believe there's a Wings fans still upset about that. Get over it. You won a Cup, we didn't, take the high road. :shakehead

As for Burish, I'm embarrassed. Dude's a terribad hockey player and then he pulls this.

gretskidoo 03-23-2013 04:22 PM

That's... the worst dive I've seen in a very long time.

Agreed on both parts

Analyzer 03-23-2013 04:23 PM

That's a pretty terrible dive even by soccer standards.

**** like that should be an automatic suspension.

DennisReynolds 03-23-2013 04:23 PM

Isn't he the one who called out Pronger?

Idk we've seen some pretty good dives in the last decade.

smitty10 03-23-2013 04:23 PM

He should be suspended for that. Playing off a sensitive issue and faking a head injury is not cool. The NHL should discipline him for that.

Del Preston 03-23-2013 04:23 PM

This is extra funny because in the second period Clowe was doing commentary on the Sharks broadcast and went out of his way to say the Sharks dive the least of any team he's ever seen. :laugh:

It's gotta be in the discussion anyway.

On a serious note, do you guys think the league will look at this and suspend him?

Clowe isn't the brightest player in the league, ill give him a pass on his commentary.

MattyMo35 03-23-2013 04:25 PM

It's funny now, but the young generations of players are growing up seeing this ****. Hockey is going to become as disgraceful as soccer eventually.

I think the league should look at stuff like that and take some kind of action to help clean up the diving in the league.


Doubt any sort of suspension tho(should get fined)... i mean they cant even get obvious suspensions right, do we really want the league to have more chances to mess up calls o.O

I can't see the video at work, but Kaleta had one of the best dives I've ever seen the shift before Orr filled him in against the Leafs.

Can the NHL suspend or fine a player for a dive if they weren't penalized for it during the game?

Getz2perry 03-23-2013 04:28 PM

Lol ya that was pretty bad didnt lydman get called too? nvm saw the call being made in the video :)

Steve 03-23-2013 04:30 PM

If you want this removed from the game, suspend him. That will be the end of the diving. That's was terrible.

Realm 03-23-2013 04:31 PM

Yes and no, depending on how you rate it. He drew the call and didnt get a penalty. So best and worst depending on how you rate them.
