Fair enough and very vaild points. Diving doesn't belong the game at all, and honestly one call against the Sharks in the first two games would have stopped it. Why not keep selling calls if the officials are letting you get away with it?

I expect the refs to do a poor job. I am just very surprised at the Sharks coming out in this series and diving so much. It has completely dictated the outcome of the first two games in their favor.


I agree with this. The Sharks aren't usually divers at all. But When Seto dove in game and the refs didn't call it, the Sharks will dive until they get called. THe refs hasn't called anything, so they will keep diving unitl they get called. The only diver we have is Nabokov, he is a pretty damn good diver, and he proved it last night.

tell those ******* on the sharks that there's always soccer

... maybe we should try punching pavelski right in the head every time we come in contact with him until we get caught... then if the sharks fans say something about it we can just say that they're a bunch of whiners!

Thanks for being reasonable and considerate given the outrage most of us here are feeling today.

in other words, you guys are hating the sharks for doing whatever it takes to win.

Hey, just think about it... they could have been diving for years in the playoffs instead of choking all this time!

I would be almost embarrassed if my team got handed a game to them in the playoffs like last night.

I've really been disgusted with the Sharks diving and the no diving calls yet by the refs! It's funny how European's are thought of as divers, and the Sharks are the team in this series with more Canadians.

I'm starting to see a trend in hockey the last few years where the Canadian born hockey players seem to have the least amount of class compared to players born in other countries.

Maybe it's because I'm a Red Wings fan, I don't know, but it seems like Canadians now are the first to whine and complain to the refs, deliver cheap shots and hits from behind, dive, and lose their temper the fastest. The Europeans now seem to be more cool headed under pressure, don't whine as much, don't cheap shot as much, and don't tend to dive as much. They seem to be a more classier bunch.

Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but if you read my posts around the Olympics, you saw how unimpressed I was with the Canadian Olympic team and I'm Canadian! I saw most of those guys as hot heads, whiners, and cheap shot artists.



It's an easy fix and it comes down to leadership. The organization and especially the coach need to snuff this crap out. It is cheapening the game of hockey and its hard to watch.

Yeah for sure, I understand. We as fans had the same frusration in past playoff series, in 06,08,09. Its pretty frusrating.

in other words, you guys are hating the sharks for doing whatever it takes to win.


If your a Sharks fan, just stop. It was pretty bad last night, the refs were at least.

Another enlightened Sharks fan, coming here to show us the truth. Whatever would do without you?

Trying to win like that comes back to haunt you.

Remember Clowe skates with Pavelski, and Clowe has been known to get a little unstable emotionally. Not a good idea.

Given the s***ty officiating last night, I think it was smart hockey. Both teams acknowledged that in games like last night, you cannot give the refs a reason to make a call. At the speed these guy's are moving, if a player get his stick up and around an opposing player, and that player falls/dives he is going to get nicked. ***** all you want, but hooking is a penalty. If the opposing player has such superior position on you that you need to use your stick to try to stay in the play, who are you going to blame?

I just don't understand where you guys are going with all this?

Not most. Maybe the band wagon fans, but the true fans know we still have two wins to win. Which is going to be the hardest. Most Shark fans I have talked too, think the series will be tied going to game 5. Maybe the Shark fans you have talked too are overly confident, but i'm not.

seriously?... I went to the sharks board and from what I read, a bunch of people think that the bad calls went both ways evenly

are sharks fans really that biased? I mean come on... it's okay, wings get lucky calls sometimes too. we just don't act like it never happened when it does

I'm lost. Your post jumped around from situations that aren't even specific enough for me to comment on from the game.

The Sharks are diving. A lot. I don't know where we are going with it either besides expressing our frustration, but hopefully the refs will try a new direction in game 3.

DITTO.

To steal a phrase from the great Yogi, this is deja vu all over again.

Overconfident? That was then. And then before that. Not now.
