Found this really interesting, considering the extent of his injuries...

If this is the case, you really have to call into question the extent of his injury. If he comes back that fast, I think the NHL should take a look at his medical records, speak to his doctors, review the video of the hit again, and investigate the injury as much as possible to ensure that his injury was not fabricated or embellished in part or whole in an attempt to influence the league's decision about Chara's suspension, or influence league officials' treatment of the Bruins game-to-game (the Bruins are called on anything and everything lately).

I sent flowers. If that's the case, I want them back.

Good he will try but thats the way they are in Montreal.,they will risk any players health just to win,especially vs Bruins,He will be a non factor when he gets back regardless.Take a long time to gey back confidence from thatJust look at Eric Cole and he better player then him..Especially witha rugged Bruins team targeting him all over again.

I wanted to avoid posting this but I talked to one of my friend from New Canaan, CT (Pacioretty's hometown). His family is still close with Pacioretty's and he told me in a conversation his mother had with Pacioretty's father she was told he only sustained the neck fracture and no concussion. I know it can frustrating seeing a post like this with no link or anything so feel free to delete it mods. I don't see why my friend (also a friend of Pacioretty) would lie about it. I don't want to start a debate or anything but I just find interesting that I was told this a week or so ago and now all this stuff is coming out.

Happy to hear he's ok.

However, Montreal should be ashamed of themselves.

Well it's everywhere that pacioretty had a fracture and no post concussion symptoms.

How often are severe concussions (which is what he was diagnosed with, correct?) cleared up within a week with no PCS symptoms?

EDIT: Not being completely snarky -- a little bit of snark with some curiosity mixed in.

Good to know his injuries aren't as serious as originally thought.

This is the exact reason why I don't support the idea of suspending a player for as long as the hurt player is out. In cases where it is such a good tradeoff for the team with the injured player what is to stop them from making things seem worse and taking their time having players come back to keep some other team's stars out of the linup.

Not saying it was the case here but this shows how easy it would be for teams to do this sort of thing.

Not often, but I don't want to pretend I know jack about concussions. I was told they are very unpredictable. In any case, I highly doubt any conspiracy, while it may seem that way, seems very strange for a guy with a broken neck and needing to be taken off a stretcher to consider selling something. I'm not convinced either, I hope max doesn't play again this year.

Don't worry, I'm on your board, while I don't consider myself in the least to be trolling, you have every right to speak of the habs this way on your board.

Does that mean the phone lines in Montreal won't be clogged up anymore? Well it's good to know a few family members of mine will be safe incase of an emergency

That's a fair statement, but montreal(or any team) would gain nothing off a trade-off as we only face you guys once more this year. It's a pretty pointless trade-off. However, I can see, (if it were regulated that way) it being a problem in a playoff series, there the trade-off is huge!

Hmmm.....I'm starting to think he was faking. Mike Ribero anybody????(He's my most hated player in the NHL because of what he did).

All kidding aside, I'm glad to hear it's not as serious as originally thought. How tentative would Max be in a Bruins-Habs playoff series?

Completely agree. Something didn't feel right when he talked to the media then joined twitter then tweeted he went to the movies and to the game. I'm talking about the concussion. I don't doubt for a second his neck injury.

Would be fitting for him to fly in like Willis Reed and eliminate us from the play-offs...

If he comes back that fast then he wasn't that hurt....or the habs front office are a bunch of uncaring idiots...

Maybe, but you're still a mod, and that deserves a certain level of respect IMO.

I also doubt a conspiracy, but don't doubt that the reports about his status could have been blown out of proportion.

Also hope he hangs them up for the year in the interest of his long-term well being.

This is pretty much just as bad as the Habs fan's conspiracy theories
