Ovi's Response To Getzlaf Calling Him a Diver: "Maybe he's just jealous. I have hair, he don't have hair."

WaPo - After Ovechkin buried the Anaheim Ducks in a 5-3 win beneath his second four-point game of the season, his counterpart captain, Ryan Getzlaf, accused him of diving. Did Ovechkin have an answer? “No response,” Ovechkin said, before then offering one. “Maybe he’s just jealous. I have hair, he don’t have hair. We can start talking about it all day long. I think it was comment because he was disappointed they lost. Again, it is what it is. “I don’t think somebody can call me diver in this league, but how I said, maybe he’s disappointed in all the kind of moments that happen.”

“I’m a big proponent of [eliminating diving],” Trotz said. “I ask our guys not to do it. I watched the tape. I don’t see any of that at all. Actually I see a dominant player that night, a team trying to get him off his game with slashes to the hands all the time and spears behind the legs, trying to get him off. They went head-to-head, he got four points. You try to do that when you’re having a tough night against a guy.”

And finally Pittsburgh forward Sidney Crosby, who didn’t see Getzlaf’s slash, but did not think Ovechkin deserved that label:

“It doesn’t stick out,” Crosby said. “There’s been other plays that stick out, but not diving.”


Hilarious. The season of Ovi continues. Getzlaf just over there hating him cause he has a beautiful set of hair. Jealousy is an ugly look, Ryan. Ovi knows he’s not a diver and gets that Getzlaf was just mad they lost and he had to blame something. The Ducks were trying to chop everyone’s hands off all game…and heads, looking at you Corey Perry.



Good for Ovi for just taking the comments in stride and cracking a joke. And if there’s one thing NHL guys hate, it’s having their hair laughed at, which makes it even funnier. He should probably just admit defeat and take Ovi’s advice and buy a few products to grow his hair back out.
