Yah, Perron's was pretty ridiculous. Lost a ton of respect for him there, just made himself look like an absolute idiot

I'll give Perron an 8/10 on the Kesler scale.

Honestly, I feel like some of the dives that happen in this league are just players losing their balance on the ice. Some have no intent to embellish whatsoever.

They have to start suspending for diving...

As a Canucks fan I can only hope that when they start doing that my team is smart enough to stop diving.

Easily the most ridiculous team performances for diving I have ever seen. Feel bad for a actual honest player like Marleau on that team. must have been embarrassing.

This is why nobody can label one team as a bunch of divers. We're seeing that EVERYONE does it. These dives lately are actually making Kesler look good. .

If it was pee wee hockey you see a lot of players losing balance, but these guys are full professional hockey players playing at the NHL level. The Shaw dive, and Perron Dive had nothing to do with "losing balance"

Any opposing fanbase would have done the same thing. Heck I bet if that was say Clutterbuck who dove like that a Sharks fan would have posted the same thread on the main board. No fanbase is above the other in this.

The league definitely needs to start suspending guys for diving. It is really getting out of control.

Burish is a useless punching bag. This makes me hate him even more.

I could see the Shaw dive being a result of it, but Perron was trying out for the Olympic diving team with that gem.

No,the Perron dive had to do with the fact the refs were awful. Oshie had just been high sticked and cut with no call. They weren't calling Edmonton for penalties,called him for 3, 2 of which were extremely borderline. I hate diving,but kid took his shot.

Must be a pretty impressive dive, considering Brown's on his feet throughout that entire gif. Or does "dive" mean "go for a line change" now?

He's not playing hockey, so I guess he has to contribute somehow.

That dive was horrible. So was the Burns highstick to the face. Lost quite a bit of respect towards the Sharks in this game. I can soon count em to the same tier with Kings & Anaheim regarding their antics.
