OT: Pat Quinn compares Quebec hockey players to soccer players because of diving

“A lot of players are falling on the ice on purpose. That means our team looks more like a soccer team. This style of play is often practised in Quebec, where players fall down easily and good body checks are often penalized.”

Pat Quinn quoted in the National Post and citing Radio-Canada

I think he means in the Q, not necessarily only by Quebecers.

Without debating whether he's wrong or right, does he really need to make that comment?? What possible good can come from it?

I see diving during almost every single NHL game ... it's not only a QJMHL problem ... it's a "hockey" problem and if the NHL starts to look even more like professional soccer, I'll have to stop watching it cause that's something that pisses me off!

I don't like bashing referees but some diving are ridiculously evident and still they are not called so I guess they do something wrong.

Stupid comment, stupid man.

Why did Hockey Canada need to give this man a job/megaphone? What happened to good junior coaches who would use this as a springboard to the NHL...

Well i guess he said it because he finds it obvious, and the players he's talking about know who they are. They should be embarrassed by this and stop being little pansies. Thats a good thing..

As someone who watches the Q here in Saint John, he is absolutely right. As offensive as this league is, its the softest and fluffiest of the three major junior leagues.

I follow both soccer and hockey very closely and I would agree from my perspective, there seems to be an excessive amount of diving from players. The problem is further exacerbated by the fact that it may be difficult to distinguish between a deliberate dive or a legitimate loss of balance.

Not really as it is against the rules. What because he is an elite player he is not obligated to follow the rules?

He's absolutely right, when I catch some junior games, I see players flip flopping on the ice like they were instructed to do so. Shame really.

How the **** can the guy be right when he has never watched an entire Q game of his life. You can have whatever opinion you want, though I would love to know how many entier OHL and WHL games you've seen....How is being from Saint John relevant to that debate? Might mean that you've seen a lot of Q games but does that make you see other games in the other 2 leagues? And then since that it seems that you hate that sort of hockey, how many Q games have you really seen?

Funniest thing about this is that often in these boards we keep being bashed 'cause we just go with heresay and don't really what we're talking about....which is EXACTLY what Quinn is doing as far as that subject goes....

By the way, that soft and stupid league in the past 10 years have seen how many of their teams either win the Memorial Cup or at least be in the final. Any soft and fluffy league, 'cause we are generalizing here, would not have sent a single team in that cup if the OHL and WHL would be that tough and that superior....

With 12 guys from the WHL I think he has spoken in more ways than one

I do not see enough Q games to judge his comments at face value. Some in the thread seem to agree. Some object to the comment outright as "bad manners"

Frankly I am not a Quinn fan for a lot of reasons regardless of his statement. If he wins, then good on him. But he wouldn't be on my list for choice to coach this team
