According to Toronto Sportsnet personality JD Bunkis

This is painful to listen to...

Well, you really can't argue with that statement.



Who the hell is JD Bupkis and why should I care about his opinion?

Sportsnet page doesn't seem to want to play anything for me, but I think it's safe to say this JD Bunk character is a moron

You can say that about 95% percent of goalies and it would be accurate, so what was his reasoning behind it?

Yeah, it doesn't play for me either. I'll just assume that's for the best.

Given the guy's name, I assume he's a parody character whose schtick is to give the worst sports opinions.

Ha ha...I heard that live and wondered who they were talking with, but then had to take the dog to the vet so couldn't wait to find out. Thanks for this. Best laugh of the day so far.

I think that he meant to say "Daniel Ratcliffe". Which makes a lot more sense.

What's funny is he deleted the tweet advertising the episode, and responded to people claiming he was just joking around and "pretending to be the Toronto heel."

- Host of "Leafs Hour" on Sportsnet Radio in Toronto
- Gets name wrong of Canadian NHL team's starting goalie
- Claims he was joking
- Accuses Calgary fans of being "triggered"
- Deletes tweet that advertises the episode


(I haven't listened to the episode, myself, and so he may very well have been "joking." But if he was just joking, and it was an obvious enough joke that anyone who didn't get it is just "triggered", then why delete the tweet?)

But why?.....

Carey Price sure, but probably the least cared about team in the centre of the universe?

JD Bupkis sounds like a coward

Well, Rittich is playing for a Canadian team, sadly no Canadian team will be allowed to hoist the Stanley Cup anytime soon...

I mean, he’s not wrong. I’ve never even heard of this Daniel Rittich character. Is there a relation?

Well and his nickname wouldn't be Kazakhstan Dan if he wasn't from Kazakhstan. Or if his name wasn't Dan. Am I right or am I right? Anyways Kazakhstan Dan will never win a cup. I think we can all get behind this. Until we can't.

I'm just kind of confused as to why that even came up?
I can't imagine Toronto sports radio takes much time to discuss Calgary, and it's not like we just played/are scheduled to play the leafs in the near future.
