Buffalo Sabres goaltender Robin Lehner has never been afraid to speak his mind or show his emotions, and this week was no different.

Lehner was speaking to the assembled media, including WKBW's Matthew Bove when he was asked about the suspension to his teammate, Rasmus Ristolainen

The answer from Lehner was nothing short of a scathing criticism of the National Hockey League, one where he outright stated that certain teams received different treatment than others. He even went so far as to say that if Ristolainen had been wearing a different jersey, the suspension would have been different.

Here's the relevant segment of the interview.
