ihwc.net I'm proud of the way we always got up after being banged around," said Finnish captain Ville Peltonen. "Nobody was lying around. Their team has done that in this tournament, and that's not the way to play. They've had players in this tournament lying on the ice. Sometimes someone gets seriously injured, and it's not the right thing to do if you're not seriously hurt. You have to respect this game and respect the other players. Atleast Schastlivy and Kharitonov have embarassed themselves. Huge jumps and dives, died on the ice couple of times -"mmm, no penalty, gotta get up then". Attempts to draw major penalties by lying on the ice(Markov didnÂ´t, Bergenheim did deserve to be ejected). Barely a contact infront of the finnish net and the guy falls down, looks to be in lot of pain. A look at the ref - didnÂ´t fall for that one - and they are back on their feet in no time. ThatÂ´s just f***ing disgusting, sort of ruins the game. I know that there is one player in Team Finland that also practises this form of art, falls down akwardly easy. DonÂ´t know is there any difference between him or any other divers - except he doesnÂ´t jump that dramatically and he usually gets up with a big grin on his face. HavenÂ´t seen him "dying on the ice" either. Well, this well-known agitator havenÂ´t pull this stunt for a while so guess I can leave him out and critizise these ridicilous dives that Russian players have made during the past weeks. Ofcourse, you can partly blame the system. There is only one ref on the ice -two next year in Canada- so heÂ´s not able to see situations so clearly. The refs havenÂ´t whistled diving very actively, so itÂ´s been able to carry on. Hitting is almost like a curse word in the World Champions: big hit, player down > gotta penalize. Player hurt/faking > gotta give major. Seems that it doensÂ´t matter is the hit clean or not. IIHF seems to have trouble handling the physical side of the game. Ofcourse, big ice, fast skillfull players, makes hitting difficult. But refs have almost made hitting impossible, because you are always in danger to get penalized.
