Per Bob McKenzie, it appears the NHL has in fact determined that Eric Gryba's hit on Lars Eller was illegal.

Here is the suspension video, courtesy of Brendan Shanahan. Note that the key word here is "reckless". It was not a malicious hit, but that doesn't make it legal either. Gryba failed at his attempt at a clean hit, and he is suspended as a result.
