For the second time this week an NHL player is accusing the Toronto Maple Leafs of some shady dealings. The Maple Leafs announced this week that forward Joffrey Lupul failed his physical for the upcoming season, the second year in a row that has happened for him. On Sunday night Lupul posted a picture on Instagram — apparently of himself snowboarding — and then went into the comments where he seemed to argue that he is not injured and is ready to play, saying “I’m ready … just awaiting the call” and “haha failed physical? They cheat. Everyone lets them.” Lupul has deleted the cheating comment, but here is a screengrab, via TSN.
