Basically, he was saying that given the fact that Pax was "tweeting" from the movies a few days after the hit and released a statement shortly after the injury, it was obvious that the initial diagnosis of a "severe" concussion must have been incorrect. (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.
The same Marc Savard who miraculously came back from a concussion to play in the playoffs.
