Its still a cause for concern if you are signing him for many years. The potential is there since he already has one reported concussion.
It's pretty safe to say that this was Richards first concussion. He has missed notable games only more than two games only three times in his career -- March 2009 (broken wrist), April 2009 (broken hand), and March of 2011 (concussion). If he has suffered unreported concussions, then he's a true ironman.

Comparing his concussion "history" to Savard's is embarrassing.

EDIT: You're right that two concussions can kill a career. One concussion can kill a career. So could being struck by lightning. Or developing cancer (ie: Lemieux). Or being hit by a car. Or a heart condition.

I maintain that comparing Richards' health history to Savard's is simply embarrassing.
