Its definitely questionable... As soon as the tip of the blade makes contact with his skates he falls? 50/50

Wasn't even a ****in dive. Terrible call.

So far we got a Bruins fan and a Flames fan confirming it as a dive. Pretty par for the course in this thread

When a stick gets in the way, people fall. If Daniel dived, is everyone expected to be like Jagr on their skates?

Like I said it's questionable... If there was a tug, or stick getting caught between his legs it's different... I didn't say 'it was a dive,' I said it was questionable... The stick looked like it made minimal contact... barely enough to make a grown man fall... but I could be wrong.. Could just be a reputation call (Not Daniel personally, the nucks in general)

Hopefully they slap Kesler around after the game, that call was because of previous Van dives.

And so far we have a bunch of nuck fans defending it, and calling it BS, etc..... What's your point? Bias is everywhere, not just with teams that hate yours.

No, it's not questionable. It was a bad call. Not a dive.

Attn village people and blind ref: this is not a dive. He hooked both his feet, one after the other.

You can see he even tried to skate through it and just toe picked his left skate when it came back down.

Awful call.

I thought I remembered a really funny one where Sedin dove when it looked like Brian Campbell shot him, so I searched 'sedin dive' on YT. The first page was full of Henrik, without one instance from Daniel. I honestly thought they'd be great at synchronized diving, but i guess this is one way to tell them apart. Kudos to Daniel, boo Henrik.

They switch jerseys and only flop in 33. Its a Swedish superstition.

Another thing that is less noticeable, but Henrik is a little tougher (lol I know). He probably wouldn't have let Marchand punch him in the face multiple times. I'm wondering if any other Canuck fans have noticed this?

Either way, now you can boo them both.

Good camera angle... Not a dive.

It was questionable when sportsnet showed one clip/angle, but this is solid evidence.
