A few months back, the players were talking about making a list of known divers. It was proposed that lists of divers be posted in every locking room to embarrass the mentioned players and force them to stop the exaggeration.

1. How should the NHL tackle the problem of diving and general exaggeration?
2. Create a league-wide list of known divers.

1. Call it and not the 'false offense'.

2. Can they post GIFs in the locker rooms instead?

NBA is fining players right now for diving/flopping. Could the NHL do the same?

What's the point?  Everyone knows who these people are anyway.  No secret.  

 

I think the league just needs to return to regularly calling diving.  They went away from it since the lockout, and it's created more divers.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Since the lockout/since Crosby entered the league.. How convenient.

I like how the linesman swooped in to stop Franzen from unleashing any fury. Another mouthguard removal might have ended Thornton's career.

Anyone else remember when this was proposed by the League? I do. The timing of it was, in a word, impeccable. 

The on-ice officials have to made aware of what goes on (if they aren't already), recognize who the guilty parties are and talk quietly amongst themselves in order to solve this problem.  Would the League appreciate it if a list was published of the worst on-ice officials?

Yes the league should crack down on divers, but it happens so fast I don't know that you can rely on refs to handle it in games.  

 

I think the best way is to have a video official reviewing questionable plays after a game.  The on ice refs could even let them know which plays they want looked at it. 

 

But even then only the most extreme cases will get punished.  The stick not actually hitting Carcillo's face.  Kesler's ridiculous flop. 

 

Fining those guys even after games though should help.  They embarrass the refs and league with their antics, so they should be publicly embarrassed too.

I'm a supporter of the off-ice official.  Sometimes you just can't see what we can from the ice.

Anyone with kids should know how much trouble the officials have seeing everything as it happens.  They have to watch for a zillion things at once and try to catch it all.

 

Divers are like little kids.  Maybe they should have to sit in a corner for a couple of games if two minutes isn't enough.  When they can act like big boys, they can play with the big boys.

Agreed. It's solution so simple and elegant  that I'm sure the NHL will never implement it.

Yzerman used to flop a bit. Not as bad as Forsberg though.

Franzen embellishes too. I do wish the NHL would try and clean up the diving. It has become soccer-like embarrassing from certain players and teams lately.

If we're going to let the game police itself when it comes to guys taking runs at one another, spot picking, dirty hits, etc. why not do the same thing with diving.  If you're playing a team with a notorious diver and he does it in the game, send a tough guy out to deal with it.  Every time Kessler or someone else on Vancouver dives I'd make it Jordin Tootoo's mission to punish someone, and let it be known what the reason was.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."
