The diving kills the sport if you allow things like this. If Jagr does not fake - there is probably no penalty and if it is then it is only two minutes.
BTW about the compaints - Atyushov said that the were simply stunned how Jagr could trick the ref like that, he said it was an obvious dive no doubt about it.
Seriously? A dive? Have you any kind of first hand on what kind of damage an impact on the knee can cause, esp. from the front? It is a very complex joint, even low energy impacts can cause severe damage and pain.
