After three years of failing to advance past the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and with one of the greatest cores in the NHL locked up long term, the expectations for the Toronto Maple Leafs are insane.
It’s basically Cup or Bust.
Oh sure, people will try to sound measured, they’ll talk about just showing progress and all that, but underneath any Leafs fan is a raging id demanding victory or else…..
So don’t expect this season to be any less insane than usual.
With heightened expectations comes heightened insanity.
Cup or Bust
Now, my personal ethos is that judging a team based on results is unfair based on the parity of the NHL and the amount of luck that goes into winning.
