Lets hope no concussion specialist purposely falsify a diagnosis.
Mark Specter is being absolutely ridiculous.
There is a reason it's called *post* concussion syndrome. Symptoms of a concussion often don't arise until hours or days after the hit to the head was sustained. A player may finish a game, without realizing they've been concussed, and then wake up with symptoms days later. To suggest anything is being falsified is a disservice to the health of the player. (Although sending a player out to skate who has been hit in hard in the head is also a disservice).
Maybe if you want to continue on suggesting (not claiming) that there is a possibility the Canucks are falsifying the diagnosis, you should look between the lines. If the purpose was to obtain a stricter punishment for Keith, they did so by saying Daniel was out indefinitely (not a lie), and by not commenting on the severity of the concussion (which is really up to how the player feels).
/Guh, Wetcoaster beat me too it.
//Suffered a minor concussion last year, thought I was fine for 4-5 days after, then felt downright rotten for a couple months.
