If you look at Finns who are playing or has played in the NHL there isn't many who would fall under the category of divers. Jarkko Ruutu in the later years is about the only one I can think of. Finns may be many things but I don't see my countrymen as divers.
Call me biased but thats my honest opinion.
I would agree with this. Every nation has had their divers and dirty players, but the Finns in general play it pretty honorable.
