Let’s get something out of the way: There is no question that Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby are the two most talented players in hockey.

If you ask anyone in Philadelphia or New York, they will tell you Crosby is the biggest diver in the NHL, but Ovechkin has been penalized for this offense many more times. Let's take a look at some of the dives that you won’t see on the highlights.
