I don't want to make it sound like I'm pro-diving, but I think it's more of a symptom of the greater problem than a problem in and of itself. Players would be less likely to dive if the refs would call obstruction penalties without a player lying on the ice. Some players dive because they want to create offense. If they can't do that because someone is grabbing them away from the puck, then they'll try to draw the powerplay and score on that.
