Especially on home ice, even more so during the playoffs, it's hard for the ref to not blow the whistle. The problem is if the ref makes a bad diving call in a big game, like during the Winter Classic, everybody be all over him for his horrendous call. So how, as a ref in the playoffs, do you call dives without making yourself look like an idiot?

As I said earlier, I think the best way is to do something like what the NBA does in after the fact, the league penalizes the diver. With not much reason to not flop like Ovechkin did, why not turn the ice into a stage?
