Assuming you're talking about the Avs' third string goalie last week.
Looking through his posts, he does nothing but make comments that try to evoke responses usually doing nothing to back up his claims. I wouldn't sweat him, I wasted my time even responding.

Looking through my posts you'd find out that I'm not a coyotes fan.

While, after seeing more replays, am not sure that Brown got Roussel in the head, there's no doubt he brought the elbow out.
And anyone who claims to be a Kings fan, yet strongly deny that he ever blatantly dives is surely trolling

Alright, go through all of them and get back to me with the real statistic. Until then, we will have to just accept my thesis.

Can't wait until Benn takes Brown's diving into his own hands

I'm asking because you seem so sure the fans are booing the injured player rather than the timing of the call or the call itself.

I'd love to see that. Kings fans know all too well what happens when Brown gets into the opponents' heads.

Embellishing and diving while not the same in actual "act", they both are the same in that they try to draw a penalty by over reacting to the first action(or in some cases; lack-thereof )

Note: Lots of players dive, including some of the Canucks(inb4 Canucks fan complaining about diving), but rarely do you have someone of Browns size, skill, and "nastiness" dive and embellish so much. If you honestly believe he doesnt, a quick youtube search would teach you otherwise.

Only thing Been has to worry about is, what type of golf clubs to get ready.

That was my theory to be considered, and now you can prove me right or wrong. Good luck!

Guess that won't be happening any time soon as Benn will be more busy concentrating on his golf game.

So basically they said that because Quick touched the puck after the high stick then the play was still alive. Does the opposing player just have to touch the puck to keep the play alive after a high stick, or does he need to control the puck? Anybody know the rule?

No they didn't. There was no call on the play. You are imagining things. Get it right.

Completely aware one is supposed to prove their own thesis correct. If you haven't noticed I really could care less at this point. And to prove as such, good luck in your future endeavors of riling up people on the main boards.

What makes that video even more hilarious is the fact that Kari Lehtonen commits the biggest dive. Nice acting there.

There wasn't a call, unless they had a significant delay in booing an offsides.

I'm not denying that Brown doesn't embellish hits. He's one of the best in the game at it. However, as you stated, that's not the same as diving. Some fans can't tell the difference, and they are often the ones who make the youtube videos, which aren't a measuring stick by any means.

Hell, even the Stars' esteemed announcers got it wrong tonight when they immediately called the hit on Roussel a head shot when it wasn't.

Theres was contact made between the two but ignore that.

Brown never made contact with the head. Watch the video from the FSW feed. It clearly shows Roussels stick hit him in the face and the elbow doesnt come up until after contact is made.

Ive admitted he dives on occasion. I also say that his reputation for it is over blown. Its funny that every claims he dives so much yet its always the same few videos that get posted as evidence. You had a few posters sat he dove 4-5 times in the first alone yet its the same video from a month ago.

Had me puzzled too, I was at the game tonight, and they booed the play being blown dead.

There was a little hand clapping when the Stars player got up and off the ice.

No idea what people are talking about.
