from the Bruins Blog at the Boston Globe,
GM Peter Chiarelli provided an update on Patrice Bergeron, who suffered a Grade 3 concussion six days ago when Philadelphia defenseman Randy Jones belted him into the TD Banknorth Garden boards.
“He could be out a month. He could be out two months. He could be out a year,” Chiarelli said.
Chiarelli said that Bergeron can hold a conversation for several minutes, but then becomes tired and loses focus.

Chiarelli’s had enough.
“Those are the terms I’ve been using. Ludicrous and absurd,” said Chiarelli. “I guess I’m angry at some of these takes. Commentaries, web sites, talk radio—you should hear some of the talk radio out of Montreal. They’re saying he’s partially at fault for this. It angers me. It angers the Bruins organization that they’d say it’s his fault in this case. To say he should have been more careful retrieving the puck, to me, is absurd.”
