Danny Briere on concussion: ‘I’m not too good right now’

Not exactly a sunshine and rainbows weekend for the NHL when it comes to its concussion problem. (Whether or not it's an epidemic is a matter of semantics and, in the NHL's case, some legal concerns.) Sidney Crosby is visiting yet another doctor for his symptoms.
