I only saw Briere's and Leino's tonight. Briere's I don't really mind. He was clearly interfered with and the flop wasn't that eggregious. He probably could have stayed up but likely would have been knocked off balance and the puck was long gone by then. Leino's flop is just embarrassing.
Yeah I know, but I've worn cups too and it's not like they don't do anything. You have to get hit fairly hard to drop like a sack of potatoes like Leino did. I see the contact with the skate too; Leino's right skate may get caught up with Byfuglien which could have caused the fall. But if nothing else, Leino clearly tried to attract attention by throwing his arms in the air and that makes him look a little suspect to me.
