The Rangers really need to start diving -- if the reffing won't change, we should.
I understand the whole not wanting to win with ******** like that. But screw that. I'd rather win ANY way -- dirty or clean. Integrity can only get you so far. Sometimes you need to resort to dirty tactics in order to actually win.
We've seen so many teams get PPs against us by diving. Just tonight Carlson blatantly dives and draws the game winning PP.
I'm tired of seeing our forwards get mugged, not go down, and not get a call. It seems that the only way to get a call that's deserved is to go down like you've been shot. How many times do we see guys draped all over Gaborik? Sticks under his arms, wrapping him up, etc. Dude does not go down and never seems to draw a penalty because of it.
Crosby has been a master of diving. He's drawn penalty after penalty with it. ****, the Hurricanes dove all the way to a Cup a few years back. I remember everyone complaining about it (including opposing teams), yet they still kept getting the calls when they went down.
If the reffing isn't going to change, the Rangers might as well conform to the reffing and get the calls that other teams get.

kreider's dive tonight was by far the best dive(if a dive) that i have ever seen in my life. it looked like he acknowledged the stick being there and sold it perfectly-- as though he actually touched it-- though that could be why the refs got revenge on us-- for making them look like fools.
For the record, this thread is somewhat humor and somewhat serious.
Lol and somewhat frustration
We do dive did you see cally fall after semen tapped him with a stick in game 1? Our pk is good enough to kill those last two penalties. weak calls Are everywhere in these playoffs. Did you see the "trip" on Kreider?
