#2561399 Nyquist Fined for Diving/Embellishment

Posted by kipwinger on 07 January 2015 - 06:26 PM

Definitely deserved but what about teams like Anaheim and Pittsburgh that breed divers? I don't see them getting fined.

 

Considering they've only handed out like 3 fines so far, I'd say just wait a while.  They'll get theirs.


 

Hitting someone in the head and embellishing are slightly different things.

 

I think you're being a bit too hard-line about this. Diving sucks, but it's a thing. That's why they're doing this fining system - it's gotten slightly out of control and the league wants to clamp down on it. (Granted, the same can be said of hits to the head. But, again, I'll take a dive over a shot to someone's head. Not that I condone either one, mind you.)

 

Point is, you can rationalize just about anything by saying "we're not the only ones doing it".  Doesn't make it any less dirty.  It takes ZERO class to dive.  If Yzerman didn't do it, and Lidstrom didn't do it, and Datsyuk and Zetterberg don't do it, then our next generation stars and leaders shouldn't do it.  Nyquist obviously feels like it's ok to do.  He should be broken of that flawed thinking by the coaching staff.

Sheeesh you guys act like that never happens and he's not the only one doing it.  

 

By that rationale we should be ok with it if one of our guys cheap shots someone in the head.  Ya know, because other people do it too. 

 

I'm a proponent of having higher standards than that.

I just hope he stops doing it. It's embarrassing for him and for the organization.

 

Kudos to the NHL for addressing the issue btw. I can't stand soccer because of the diving going on there.

I'd rather see Cleary. At least give him a game. 


No. That a a bad idea. Then babs will say he's a warrior and he'll play 40 games before he gets benched. I'd rather see Weiss.

Suspension for both refs or a fine. Some punishment should be levied.

It's s*** like that that really ruins my enjoyment of the game. Get your s*** together, NHL.

Swap Kindl for Ouellet and I'm happy. I don't even hate KFQ this year yet.



It hurts to say but Q has been solid so far

100% agree. Quincey has been good ever since about half way into last season. That plus getting Dats back in the lineup and this team will be really fun.

Probably cause none of them use walking aid, be it a cane, walker or other elderly mobile aid device. Love the youth.


Agreed. It's really noticeable in the first two games.

Only if he's taking Kindl's spot. Otherwise we have enough dman kids on the way.
