When you add in the idiocy of the 911 stuff from some MTL fans, it tainted the whole incident.

Horton was released from the hospital the next day, and there were never any claims that he had suffered anything more than a big hit to the head.
The reports about Pacioretty being "inches from death" were probably more to do with his neck injury than the concussion.

ie. If the fracture happened a fraction of an inch lower/higher/whatever, he could have died/been paralyzed..etc.

I really don't remember any reports about him being at death's door, haha. Maybe whichever HF poster told you about such articles, was exaggerating?
