Hmm... do you really think that was a dive? I can understand why fans at the game who may not have seen a decent replay might think that... but certainly the replay I saw showed Jovo losing his footing and going headfirst into the boards... guys who are trying to gain a penalty from boarding pretty much stand facing the boards and then fall into them when hit from behind. Jovanovski was skating with speed towards the boards, and he could very likely have badly hurt himself for the season drawing a 2 minute penalty? That sounds extremely paranoid to me... or just how much the Flames fans hate the CAnucks.
