Another pathetic dive by a Rangers player. Go figure.

And people saying Karlsson is embellishing?
Kidding me? Let's see you get get rapped on your cold ear with a stick blade and not react to it...


The whole "everyone is diving and embellishing" craze is annoying.

I guess the wind from Zibby gently skating by was to much for Scrivens.

Please. Girardi is the most pathetic player in this league. He threw out his legs out like he a button on his shoulder.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say your opinion on the subject just may have been influenced by the emotion of the moment on that one.

Did I call it a dive? I was posting a gif that other people were referring to without any video.

Burrows on the other hand..... That was a little bit shameful. I thought he had lost that part of his game.

Or ya know....provide some evidence of said Canuck dive. People haven't really been doing that without certain posters TEVOing every Canucks game for said evidence.

Karlsson dive is hilarious, he feels a tap and drops like he just got sniped from the nose bleeds. Then he pops up like nothing happened. That's as clear as a dive as I've seen one.

The worst part is that the ref calls it, it's one thing when a guy dives, but he sold that dive so well that the ref bought what he was selling.

Epic dive is epic.

Kesler is a known diver, he's as bad as Derek Roy was/is.


That Scrivens fall isn't a dive, it looks like he's already off balance, hits a rut and the Sens player was near by. But then again, accidents don't happen in the NHL and everything is intentional. So I've learned the last week or so.

Was no different than when Toews hit Thornton into the boards yesterday. Borderline penalty, not a dive. People just call it cause it's Kesler.

Kesler's was the best. Looked over, saw the hit was coming. Waited for contact and launched himself into the boards

It was an obvious and pathetic dive.

Nice to see that the injury had no effect on Kesler and he's back to his old self.

Kesler got boarded twice on the same shift... somehow it's a dive.

The only embelishment I saw from a Canuck tonight was from Burrows. Shortly after getting an obvious can-opener without a call he got shoved from behind after the whistle and looked like he wanted to draw a make-up call. Didn't work, refs weren't giving the Canucks anything tonight. See Backes running Luongo.

He went into the boards a little easy, but he still got hit into the boards. It happens at least once pretty much every game by every team. Like I said in my last post it's no different than Thornton letting himself hit the boards on the Toews hit. Slight embellishment at the worst.

But please, let the anti-Kesler ******** flow.

These anti Canuck things usually start happening when the team is playing better.

Yeah he sure is putting up the points in his return

He saw the hit was coming & got the call.

Refs were garbage all night
