    So you just basically call out your two biggest rivals as the #1 and #2 teams?Coincidence? Probably not. I so agree with those teams doing so, but let's not act like there aren't others up there with them, that aren't rivals.

    I'm glad the NHL is stepping up. Diving is just horrible to watch out there. It takes the game down notches. They need to step up on the boarding calls too. I'm sick of a player going in for a fair hit, and the opposing player turns his back.

    Every team has a guy or two that does it. No need to act like it is only players on teams you don't like that are doing it

    I like Ryan Kesler, but the past few years, he's been up there for the worst/best? divers. He completely flops now, and I'm disappointed.

    Oh come on. They've got some absolute warriors on that team, wheither you're hatred allows you to show it or not. Brian Gionta, Erik Cole, Josh Gorges, and Travis Moen are perfect examples.

    EDIT: I just youtubed "Boston Bruins Diving" and I found numerous videos. Every team has players that dive. Not just those guys. Not every single one of those guys are sitting there diving every single game. I don't want to turn this into a "Boston Bruins against myself" thread so I'll leave it at that. Montreal dives. Vancouver dives. Boston dives. Detroit dives. Some more than others. It's not just rivals that dive.

    Omfg do ppl have to be so high and mighty all the time and get into semantic arguments about nothing?

    Poll 100 NHL fans and I'm sure the majority will tell u when asked "which two teams dive/flop the most?" - Montreal and Vancouver.

    They happened to be our two biggest rivals so what?

    You tube? That's a very reliable source. Btw I also searched it for bruins diving and I got two legit dives by Marchand, and about a hundred were videos of opponents diving against the B's.

    Let's not say the "Bruins Dive" because one of our youngest players has done it twice. Montreal Dives, Vancouver Dives. Detroit is boring and don't do anything.

    Bruins fans here tend to be very over the top and one-sided with a lot of stuff they say

    We should all be objective, level headed, and sensible.

    That's not a fan. That's a news reporter, and that's incredibly boring. I'm so sick of this place being a "my posts are better than yours" contest all the time. I come here to discuss hockey, and the bruins with other FANS who are as PASSIONATE as I am.

    Seriously the league wants a list of divers given to the refs. Our most hated rivals are NOTORIOUS HABITUAL EGREGIOUS DIVERS.

    Should we not have a thread? Should we only discuss the facts in non-emotional purely analytical fashion?

    Lame

    Every different posting style. Some people like to use facts and stats to support their arguments.... Some people don't.

    To me, it's no fun just posting _____ sucks or _____ whole team dives. It's a lot more fun for me and probably other posters as well, to break down what we'd consider to be wrong.

    There's a difference between beig a passionate fan and lookin like a complete fool. Not directed at anyone of course

    To me it's a lot more fun being a passionate fool than a snide monotonous critic, not directed at anyone in particular of course.
