As noobman stated, the only kind of diving that is looked down up is embellishment used to draw calls, like this:


Blocking shots is generally admired, you're sacrificing your body for the good of the team. I used to block shots when I played HS hockey, but in beer league I never do, it can totally suck when you catch a slapper off the skate, neck, or other regions with minimal protection, it's just not worth the risk for beer league games. Your foot/ankle can be broken even on just moderately strong shots.
