Besides, your link is accompanied by no evidence other than your former coaches opinion of the play.

I agree that no team is immune to diving and I don't really consider the Sharks any more prolific at it than any other team.

I wasn't intending to start an argument, I just thought that gif was well done, quite funny and fitting to the topic of the thread.
There isn't any footage of it on YT, because it was in 2003, but Shanahan grabbed Ekman's stick and hit himself in the face late in a game vs SJ to draw a penalty, and it worked.

The gif is funny, too.
