I'm not denying that Brown doesn't embellish hits. He's one of the best in the game at it. However, as you stated, that's not the same as diving. Some fans can't tell the difference, and they are often the ones who make the youtube videos, which aren't a measuring stick by any means.

Hell, even the Stars' esteemed announcers got it wrong tonight when they immediately called the hit on Roussel a head shot when it wasn't.
