Crosby could be considered in that category too....but all he has to do is look at the on ice officials and he gets a power play cause someone breathed alittle too closely

I like the 4 minutes for diving idea. However, even with the current rule... If refs actually called it, there would be less diving.

Very interesting rule changes by the NHL especially the penalty shot rule change. We'll see how this goes.

get rid of the instigator and let these diving punks who hide behind abusing the rules get the living snot kicked out of them for trying to show up the other team... you think derik roy will keep diving after he gets pounded bc someone took exception to his antics? i dont. garbage like this never happened when the player were ALLOWED to police themselves, the game was much more honorable in so many ways. the more the league tries to "control" things the worse they get....

the major penalties for interference is a big deal imho. you already see clubs like the Devils and Canes embellish like nobodies business to try to draw interference penalties, now you are going to see these teams pretend like theyve died after the play, limp off to the lockerroom as if they were shot, come back 10 seconds later, and will enjoy a full 5 minute major penalty.

i dont like that rule one bit.
Funny, though, that the Devils are CONSTANTLY interfering on the ice and that's my main gripe with them. I don't think they dive any more than our own team does (outside of Brodeur).

But I DO feel that they get away with more of the ticky-tack **** than we do. And I think that that's pretty clear.

Now our guys should pretend to be hurt when they are interfered with
