(I am sure he is basing this on the fact that both Bergeron and Savard suffered far worse symptoms after their "severe" concussions)
I disagree with the "embellishment" answer, but the guy was just stating his opinion, and said four or five times that he was glad Pacioretty was recovering so quickly. Mountains out of molehills looking to feed the media frenzy.
And for the 92nd time, Bergeron's and Savard's concussion's symptoms have absolutely nothing to do with Max Pac's. Everybody reacts and recovers differently. The doctors rightfully called it a severe concussion and this is what it is. There is no city-wide conspiracy. I have nothing against Recchi stating his opinion, but he should've done a little research before looking like a complete moron.
