TORONTO - The Maple Leafs did not intend to make Joffrey Lupul go hungry because of the lockout.

Lupul took to Twitter on Sunday to express his surprise that the 93-day labour dispute had become so intense that his reservation request at the team-themed Real Sports Bar and Grill was turned down because he's a player. Another report said new teammate James van Riemsdyk tweeted a similar experience a few weeks ago at the popular eatery next to the Air Canada Centre.
