Why is one lesser than the other, though? I have just as much of a problem with Carcillo kicking his head back on a phantom high stick as I do with a player going superman the minute he feels a hook being applied.
The problem isn't that there isn't a distinction between the two, it's that as the sport is currently officiated there is zero disincentive to embellish/dive/whatever.
