you guys care about diving way to much. its just guys doing whatever they can to win a game and draw a penalty. watch a basketball game, they fall every time they shoot to draw a penalty. i hate that. but i dont think diving in hockey is a huge reason to not like a player.

That's one of the big reasons I don't watch basketball, and right now the NHL is headed that way. There seems to be a dive at least once a game now.

In his first couple seasons I remember Stevey being a cocky prick at times and did lots of chirping...But so would I with Probert on my wing!

I do. It is particularly offensive to me and I lose all respect for floppers. I'm old school too and although players in the past would cheat any way they could, diving was frowned on.

It's up to the league to enforce it, otherwise it is an unfair advantage for those that take advantage of it.
