It's really pretty simple. The guy feels like crap every day, and has had to cancel two appearances.
It doesn't have to be one finishing blow, if you keep getting hit while you have concussions, it either makes the first one worse, or gives you another one on top of the one you had.
It took them a few weeks of him not playing before they figured out what happened.
I agree, my thinking is that he probably had some concussion symptoms that were written off as side effects of the injury and surgery to his eye.
Ultimately all we have to go by is what we get from Pronger's wife, and none of that can be thought of as positive in anyway. I'll be flat out shocked if he even attempts a comeback given how closely his symptoms compare to Primeau's (who is still having symptoms).
