You drew a faulty conclusion there. I didn't say Bertuzzi set an example in that series, only that he does dive as often as others do. I distinctly recall Bertuzzi taking one complete dive in that series though. He anticipated Jackman hitting him around the blueline and just fell. Problem was he fell before Jackman had even gotten close to make contact; so, the refs let it go (for once). Besides that, Bertuzzi spent so much time in the box during the playoffs, he would have been hardpressed to dive as much as other players. As I said though, those were different lines of thought and weren't intended to be combined as you did.
