Are the antics back?

50 posts in this topic

With Kesler back and him + Burrows in full force, is it just me, or are the diving and flopping antics back? There were evidence of those - methinks - in the last game.

As much as I hate it when they lose - and will continue to support them no matter what - I'd still want the team to play with integrity. Don't care if other teams are not.

I didn't notice it either. Are you talking about when Kesler drew those two penalties? They were legit hits that would put someone on the ice.

If you're talking about right at the end of the game where the Canucks drew like 3 or 4 penalties .. those were all penalties. Kesler may have embellished a LITTLE bit on that boarding/hitting from behind call, but he was hit on the numbers with his face towards the boards so it was a penalty regardless.

Are you talking about the play where Shorty thought Burrows tried to draw a penalty? I didn't see a replay so can't say, but the penalites Kesler drew were obvious penalties.

If the Canucks were diving, why is it that I saw more Blues on the ice than Canucks?

If the Canucks were diving, the refs would have called it - for the last 2 games the refs have been calling the Canucks for breathing on the opposition.

I actually did notice a bit of a dive by Kesler, and I groaned. Its one of the many reasons why I am not a Kesler fan....I have to admit he is awesome on the team, but he pisses me right off.. He embarrasses the team too much.

I think Burrows tried to draw a penalty (dive) near the end of the third period.

Given past years I'd like to personally not see any antics.

It's unfortunate but with the shoddy quality of reffing in the NHL these days, I can almost see why one would resort to embellishing.

I was watching the Ducks/Jackets game yesterday and one of the Ducks got poked in the face with a stick. It was definitely a high stick but not a vicious cut to the face, yet the player still grabbed his face like he was in a world of pain. I honestly didn't see someone who was being a baby, I saw someone who didn't trust the ref one bit to make the call on his own and took measures to make it visible to the ref that he had been hit in the face with a stick.

RE: the original post, I didn't see any of that last game. Just wanted to make that point.

I've actually not seen a single dive from Kesler thus far.

Keep it up Kes, no more of that BS

Just because some haters claim it's a dive, they claim it every time a Canucks player goes down, that doesn't mean it's actually a dive, it's gamesmanship and propaganda, we can't buy into that narrative.
