Its hardly the blatant dive that people have made it out to be, and might not even be a dive at all. Thats not typically how players embellish hooks, and looked like his skate may have slipped. It definitely happens. However, the crime in the play is not Sakic, but the official who made the call. Whether it was a dive or not, it was Sakic losing his footing on his own, not the Ducks' player's hook or trip or whatever it was deemed. Theres no way thats a penalty.

All that said, get over it. One thread was already more than enough on the subject.
