Joffrey Lupul denied reservations at Toronto restaurant because of lockout

joffrey-lupulToronto Maple Leafs winger Joffrey Lupul vented his frustration over Twitter on Sunday after being denied reservations at a Toronto restaurant because of the NHL lockout.

Lupul was apparently trying to dine at Real Sports, which the National Post describes as a “popular team-created establishment next to the Air Canada Centre.” The restaurant is owned by Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which runs the Leafs.

The NHL players are not allowed to associate with their teams during the lockout, and apparently that ban extends to team-owned restaurants. An understandably frustrated Lupul deleted that tweet and wrote this follow-up message:

The NHL players are considering dissolving the union, which is a strategy the NFLPA used during the NFL lockout. We’re hoping the labor issue is resolved in time to have a half-season. In the meantime, Lupul will just have to find another restaurant in Toronto where he can grab a burger and fries, or whatever it was he planned to order.
