Absolutely stupid.
I thought the Gerbe call was a Dive too and Roy definitely went down easy. But like you said, why even hit him or poke Gerbe's leg even a little bit?! That team is sooo bad, the refs could have called a penalty against them virtually EVERY shift. Vanek gets his stick Slashed out of his hands, Ehrhoff gets Boarded...Nothing called, so I give Roy and Gerbe high marks for being savvy enough too realize that the refs owed them a few calls even despite having a ton of PP time.

That sort of "Diving" is the #1 reason why the Flyers went on too round two last spring, and we did not. I'm not a fan of it, but the players don't get too choose the battle field, they only get to figure out how to survive it. They are learning.
