I think this is a case of people showing their biases a bit.

The Edler hit was very borderline. It definitely wasn't a dive, and Edler has to have responsibility for not hitting a guy head-first into the boards when they're in that position. I'm more surprised that he didn't get the penalty than I would be if it were the other way around.

However, it wasn't nearly bad enough to justify the tantrum Perry threw.
