Perception: The Sedins dive. Truth: They do, but so does just about every player in the NHL when they believe it will lead to an advantage to their team. Some do it better than others. Some do it more often than others. Yet only some get called out for it.
I watch a lot of Canuck games (I live in BC), and the Sedins did not have a diving rep prior to last playoffs. Then Henrik did a couple of hilariously bad dives last playoffs and the hfboards hivemind started to buzz.
