pot, meet kettle

Does there even exist a goalie who isn't a diver?

Novak Djokovic 05-15-2013 07:09 PM

He's absolutely right, but every single goalie in the league dives. Every single goalie.

Lucbourdon 05-15-2013 07:10 PM

He is 100% right, he is a diver, everybody knows this, even HF knows this

LPH 05-15-2013 07:11 PM

Probably still mad about the Edler suspension

still doesn't justify him making the comments. Mike Smith is one of the worst out there though.

Chfan 05-15-2013 07:11 PM

He's right but he's not really one to talk. :laugh:

Good point. I honestly don't know how someone can call other people out when their antics are all over the internet.

Plus when other players on Vancouver have been accused of diving and it's obvious by looking it up on YouTube.

VinnyC 05-15-2013 07:26 PM

Henrik plays with Burrows and Kesler, he knows a thing or two about diving.

lol @ people calling Hank himself a diver and posting the same videos as usual.

/e keep in mind Edler got a joke of a suspension because of Smith's theatrics so that's most likely why he's not amused

Jussi 05-15-2013 07:26 PM

Mike Smith: "Well, you got cooties...poopypants!"

RDRR 05-15-2013 07:27 PM

Good.

I don't mean to come into this thread and de-rail it, but I don't think I've ever seen Antti Niemi embellish or dive what so ever. I'm sure there are other goalies who I just don't watch enough.

Smith is in the upper tier of bad though, so is Jimmy Howard.

Taelin 05-15-2013 10:39 PM

Thank god Henrik finally has a quotable quote!

And just because someone might do the same thing, doesn't make it any less true. Henrik hasn't dived in the past 2 years.

Finnpin 05-16-2013 12:35 AM

Henrik, so are you.

LiveeviL 05-16-2013 01:31 AM

Smith answers (with a Hamhuis vid. in the article too for those who are interested)

Quote:

That it is cool [what Sedin said]. I just go behind the net and do my job. I play the puck and what happens happens. Lets worry about that when we go out on the ice
[translated from the Swedish translation, so some might be lost].

For my part I really agree with Henrik that it is wrong that Smith holds on the puck as he does just to draw a penalty. He is abusing the protection he gets by the rules.

QnebO 05-16-2013 01:59 AM

In finnish media it was added that Henrik send that message mainly for referees, because they might not know Smith.

SillyRabbit 05-16-2013 05:07 AM

What he said was true.

LiveeviL 05-16-2013 05:13 AM


FinRuutu 05-16-2013 06:22 AM

Water is wet, sky is blue, Mike Smith is a diver...

But H. Sedin is the wrong guy to call him out.

Absolutely.

Kershaw 05-16-2013 07:12 AM

Really? lol. A Sedin called out another player for diving?

LaGu 05-16-2013 08:19 AM

Take it easy, Sedin's just trying to **** with the heads of Smith and the refs. Doubt that it will do any good but I don't mind a bit of back-and-forth trash-talk before these games. To bad most hockey players are so damn polite all the time.

That's the boring truth.
