It has been stated elsewhere that Sakic didn't dive on the play. I think it was pretty damn obvious that he did. Watch the movie and judge for yourself.

In all my years of watching Joe from when he was very, very young, I have NEVER known Joe Sakic to dive. He has never been that type of player. That has not been part of his character.

This footage does not look like a typical dive that some players perform to get a penalty. Joe simply lost his footing and got right back up to pursue the play.
