“I have respect for the Montreal Canadiens team and the way they played that series and the way that they battled, but to be completely honest, I don’t have respect for actions like that.

“That’s a travesty to the game. That’s not the way the way the game is supposed to be played. When I saw that happen in the first period, when he threw himself back on Campbell, it can be infuriating.

“If anything, it seems the refs let him get away with more, which I’m very surprised at. He’s making the refs look not good on a regular basis. He has got enough talent, and he’s a good enough player that there’s no need for stuff like that.”

-Tim Thomas, goaltender for the Boston Bruins on Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban.  More at the Toronto Sun.

I’m glad someone other than me posted this.

So, what was Thomas’ comment on Chara’s dive in the first period? I presume he had a similar reaction?

TUC, I also thought that was a dive by Chara. No way a guy that big goes flies that far from the small push he got.

Probably dozens of dives in the post-season so far, but only one guy whining about it to the media.  I’m glad Thomas has no respect for that, I have no respect for him crying to the media about it.
