Thoughts on the Patrick Kaleta penalty

Yesterday when Kessel knocked down Miller we had a power play until Kaleta decided to jump on Kessel immediately and even it out to a minor penalty to each team. We saw a similar situation with Tootoo where we only received a 1 minute power play after running Miller. While watching the game a bunch of my buddies, who are leafs fans, were celebrating saying Kaleta is a moron and took a dumb penalty. I told them I didn't think it was a dumb penalty. The way Miller fell he couldn't tell if Kessel meant to hit him or not, and he had to act immediately, because if he didnt, the media could go off about this team being soft again, especially with this new "we don't back down to anyone" persona they are starting to show. It sucks we didn't get a power play but its nice Kaleta was able to feed Kessel with 7 or 8 shots in the back of the head

How do you feel about the penalty? Is it time to be a little less sensitive around Miller and take the man advantage in cases like the accidental bump by Kessel? Or do we continue this zero tolerance approach and make sure anyone that comes near him will pay?
