Joffrey Lupul Twitter Drama Is The Highlight of TSN TradeCentre Coverage

Joffrey Lupul Twitter Drama - TSN TradeCentre

Hearing about trades involving the likes of Chris Stewart, James Wisniewski, Maxim Talbot, and Marek Zidlicky may not interest you, but I bet all this Joffrey Lupul Twitter drama will.

It all started early this morning, when TSN was posting tweets with the hashtag #TradeCentre during their round-the-clock NHL Trade Deadline coverage.  And one of those tweets from @AdragnaA21 made a somewhat humorous reference to previous rumors surrounding Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul and the wife of teammate Dion Phaneuf.

Check it out:

We’re going to assume that TSN was automatically grabbing any tweets with #TradeCentre and posting them on their TSN TradeCentre broadcast without checking first to make sure they were appropriate.  They would eventually realize the error and issued the following apology via their Twitter account:

But by then it was too late, as the screen-cap of the comment was already making its rounds on social media.  One person who didn’t appreciate it much was Lupul himself.  He fired back at TSN for airing the tweet with a tweet of his own:

He may have a point, but I’m going to have to side with Maple Leafs fan @Triggs3489, who had an even better point when responding to Lupul’s angry tweet:

The 3pm ET trade deadline has come and gone, and both Lupul and Phaneuf are still members of the Leafs.  Needless to say, this disastrous 2014-15 NHL season couldn’t end soon enough for the NHL’s most valuable franchise.
