Will the NHL publicize divers?

Interesting tidbit here from the New York Daily News , pertaining to last week's news that the NHL is cracking down on embellishment: [Bill] Daly, the NHL's deputy commissioner, told the Daily News via email on Friday that the NHL's new fines for players and coaches for excessive diving will be determined after each game by video review, regardless of the call on the ice. In other words, just because a player isn't called for embellishment in a game doesn't mean the league can't charge him for it later.

Avs' Siemens hopes this is his year

Colorado Avalanche prospect Duncan Siemens was the fourth defenseman picked in the 2011 NHL draft, at No. 11. That's NHL-or-bust territory and, based on other Avs picked in the first round from 2009 to 2013, as well as first-round defensemen picked in his draft class, Siemens is a step behind.
