After what can be argued as a blindside hit by Neidermeitter earlier in the sequence, Cammalleri confronted the Isles' winger and, after the youngster swung his stick (possibly accidentally) in the direction of his head, proceeded to cross-check and then slash him in the back of the leg.
Stu Hackell, who now posts regularly for HabsInsideOut.com, questions whether Neidermeitter's hit, which went without a penalty with two referees on the ice, will factor in the league's decision.
Hackell also noted Sean Leahy's piece in Yahoo! which notes a previous incident involving Cammalleri,
"During the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs, Cammalleri escaped suspension after he smacked then-Chicago Blackhawk Martin Havlat in the head after a face-off because, according to the NHL, he was not a repeat offender. Now with no "Get Out of Jail" free cards to use, it's likely Cammalleri will face a ban of a game or two to begin the season."
Undoubtedly, Cammalleri will face some sort of suspension. The question is, how many games?
Followers of our SBNation counterpart Lighthouse Hockey, are screaming for a penalty as high as 20 games, but realistically, it won't be more than five games. With Colin Campbell running the show though, it's hard to tell.
