There is absolutely no reason to expect Savard to fail a standard NHL physical for any team. And honestly if he failed one now due to PCS the docs (and lawyers for that matter) would be looking very hard at the medical reports that cleared him to play at the end of last year.
It happens. Paul Kariya immediately comes to mind.

You can have a concussion, be dizzy for a few days. Come back fine, pass every test in the book. And then 4 months later Sneeze and shake your head, and develop Post concussion syndrome.
