The Montreal Canadiens cross the line

In last nights NHL action there was an incident in the first period where Montreal Canadiens forward Ryan White took a long run at Philadelphia Flyers Defenseman Kent Huskins and injured him with an apparent elbow. Ryan White was then jumped by Flyers defenseman Kurtis Foster and that scrap was without anything landing. On the play White picked up an elbowing major and game misconduct for his hit. And now the league has called White in for an in person hearing which typically leads to suspensions 5 games or longer.

Below is a video of the hit and proceeding fight.

What do you think White should get? I think 5 games will be about it, but lets see if the league takes a serious stand on headshots. And what about Eller? Does he deserve anything?
