Someone plays dirty, the clock moves, hopefully the refs rule on it bt if not, it's hockey.

So we're up 3-2 against the Rag$. Nash dives and gets a penalty at 19:40 and the Rag$ have 20 seconds to tie......or 2:00 to tie in your realm. Sounds great. Think about it. A smart coach has his players goading and diving, whatever it takes to claw back, correct?
Um lol first off calls go both ways, you win some you lose some. Your missing the point.. It's about principal and doing what's right and not allowing cheap scapegoat penalties just because.. It's the refs job to distinguish whats diving or an actual penalty, which no one can control but them. What the NHL can control is rules. So you'd be okay with (hypothetically) say 6 years from now game 7 of the SC finals JT has an open net with seconds left down a goal and him being dragged down and the player taking a minor but now you have say 3 seconds of PP.. I'm sure you'd be okay with that after the game ?

The point of a penalty is to punish a player for something he was not suppose to do a 3 second penalty does not reward the opportunity to make up for what should off been a sure goal, the lack of punishment just doesn't's total BS. Sports need integrity or you lose all point in the game or you not watching the better team win your watching the cheaters and teams best taking advantage of loopholes win.

Football has it right... If time runs out during a play but a player takes a penalty the penalty gets fully enforced and the down gets replayed. Full punishment is served, As it should be in hockey. You have a right to your opinion but I want to see the best team win not the best manipulators win.
