it's about representing the NHL. when he says what he said in the pregame interview to all the hockey media, that represents the NHL. That interview time is for hockey, not calling out your ex-girlfriends and their new boyfriends.
I see it this way as well, that it wasn't just what he said (though disgusting we all knew it was going to be said on the ice) but how and where he said it that got him suspended.
You have to take in his history and the potential incidents that could've occured in the game. The league was doing damage control before anything could get out of hand.
