That's a blatant dive. What happened to Leino is much murkier.
This is why I am not a Carcillo fan in general. He makes some good moves and can fight, but I generally do not like him. I do not respect the pest type of hockey, but I see the use in it.

Blatant dives like the Carcillo one posted in this thread should be suspendable imo.
Agreed. That destroys the integrity of the game Avery-style.

Soccer is rough though, balancing, trying to outrun someone, while controlling a ball, it's pretty intense, and the other guy is constantly trying to trip and tackle you. A lot of the time the players go down easily, sure, but with soccer I think the problem is the embellishment more so then the diving. WHEN they go down, they act like they broke a leg. Save it for when you are actually hurt.

I think Carcillo does it just to try and make the other team mad half the time then laugh in their face if it gets called.
Exactly, we call out other teams for diving all the time, I expect my team to play Broad Street hockey. Tough, physical, and punishing, but not diving. **** that.
