Nothing finer than diving in Caroliner

DiverRALEIGH -- Well it seems the Hurricanes are finally upset about all this diving stuff.

The guess here is they are upset because some calls went against them. Sure, they were bad calls, but it's almost as if Carolina expects the Panthers to feel bad about the calls or to come out and say something about them.

Well, sorry, but as many times as the Panthers have been on the other side of a bad call, they ain't saying nothing. No one on the Panthers think the two diving calls handed out Wednesday were warranted, but they sure as heck aren't giving them back.

Personally, I don't know if the Hurricanes are a bunch of divers or not. Do they embellish hits to draw calls sometimes? I would say yes. If not, this is the softest bunch of pro athletes around.

-- Here in the first intermission, fixed the blog as you can see. Good game so far for the Hurricanes; Panthers are very lucky this game is only 1-0. Vokoun has been great in net, and John Grahame has had good games against the Panthers in the past.

-- Go Navy...

Personally, I don't know if the Panthers are a soft team with no fan support that is one of the most horribly run organizations in all of major sports and that tries to compensate for it own failings (lack of talent, speed and toughness) with this type of cheap, distracting BS. But, I would say yes.

At least we agree on one thing -- GO NAVY!

Jeez what a suprise, a Hartfordlina Whalicane fan surfaces fromt he deep end of the pool to whine about finally getting called for the embellishment. Carolina has talent but they have to be the most unsteady skaters in the NHL because they fall down awfully easily. Somewhere in Europe Eddie Belfour is smiling as he now knows his swan dive routine from late last year was worth the effort. Good game by your team on Saturday. Even with some suspicious falls throughout. See you again later in the year......will bring the diving flags and goggles.
