Anyway, you really want to get a reputation for diving? Then we wont get the powerplay when one of our guys actually IS hauled down. Another consequence of diving, is that when you go down, you take yourself out of the play. I've actually seen decent NHL players dive on the rush or when they are starting to break away. To these guys, drawing a penalty is more important than maybe getting a scoring chance.
I say work hard, dig, grind, make that diving pass to the open man. Many of the best scoring chances happen because of the second and third effort by a player getting hooked or grabbed but refuses to go down.
Our PP to PK ratio is -48, Ottawa is +28. This is gonna kill us in the playoffs, I guarantee it !!
