Yes, we all know the only players who are allowed to dive are North Americans.

I don’t watch enough of Oil hockey to know if he’s had a persistent rib injury. It looks like that next to nothing tap hit a tender spot. It wasn’t much of a slash, but it was a stick infraction.

He’s almost in the same league with Jumbo Joe in regards to diving skills.

Dive for sure, but that’s just Keith being Keith.

Wow.
He should join the Avs.

Stick infraction, yes. Unsportsmanlike conduct? Yes. If he has hockey pants on, he should have barely felt that.

Thornton-, Ribeiro-, Kesler-, and Forsberg-esque beauty of a dive.

The Professor will straighten out his ass.

I was trying to find the only benefit of the doubt argument I could, but it sure as hell looked like a dive.

Had to go to YouTube to find examples of “Marchand dive.”  There was plenty.
