I must have missed that? I heard him say that the initial diagnosis of a "severe" concussion must have been incorrect, given Pacioretty's rapid improvement and his ability to do things like Tweet and go to the movies.

Just as a point of reference...for weeks after being diagnosed with a Grade 3 concussion, Patrice Bergeron was unable to be exposed to bright light and had to remain indoors in the dark, unable to do even simple tasks. It was a couple of months before he could walk outside unassisted. Recchi's teammate, Marc Savard had similar symptoms after being diagnosed with a lesser Grade 2 concussion, although the time frame was not as lengthy.

Given this, it's understandable that Recchi thinks that the initial diagnosis of a severe concussion was incorrect. I believe the "embellishment" agenda was being pushed by the host, but Recchi did agree with him. Personally, I don't think there was any embellishment. I think the doctors were probably just erring on the side of caution after initially examining Pax?
