Oh well, it's not worth arguing about, my definition of having your "bell rung" is different from yours. The term comes from, as I understand it, receiving a blow to the head and having ringing in your ears. While it does not equate a concussion, that is one of the symptoms.

I imagine Reemer himself insisted he was fine, took a few shifts, and then they shut him down. Just excuse me if I get a little uneasy about guys getting shots to the head. Maybe I'm overreacting, but I just like playing those things safe. The nonchalant attitude the team seems to have about these things just bugs me a bit.
