I dont see an actual article on TSN about it but they have the video posted on the main TSN NHL page.

Anyways, I guess it's not as much fun when you start playing against a team who dives as much as you do.

This just shows how out of control diving is in the nhl

What, are they mad the Canucks are trying to steal their thunder or because they want lessons?
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Agreed. It is just dishonorable. They need to start issuing fines for dives again, even if they aren't called during the game.

You can thank the s***ty refs and af****** horrible refereeing system of selective penalty calling for why both teams dive so much and get away with it.

I hope my coworkers don't think it's strange that I'm going to be laughing for at least the next 20 to 30 minutes.

However, I will agree that diving is running rampant in the NHL, and needs to be called much more often than it is.

It's embarrassing and it can be shared by both the officials and the players.

This is basically how I see it. Had a ton of respect for Pavelski BEFORE our series with them. That dropped considerably watching that clown act the way he did when anyone had a stick by his skates.

This just shows what a waterdown joke this league has become! Pretty soon the league is going to have to melt the ice so that the West Final can be played in pool for waterpolo! Thats fine, if this is what Bettman wants for the NHL then this league will become more irrelevant each year!

I just think its funny that of all teams the Shards are complaining..... Just baffling, would have been interesting to see what the Shards would have said if they wouldn't have blown yet another 3rd period lead!! Hmmmmmmmmmm...... Sweet Lord I hope Tampa Wins the Cup this year!!!

Actually, that would be a pretty awesome (and appropriate) song for Versus to intro games between the Canucks and Sharks. :P
