It’s like the swallows returning to Capistrano, except in this case it’s Leafs Nation being expected to swallow a load of crap.
Some veteran Leafs player, or someone in the front office, says something about how making the playoffs is the team’s goal and anything else is “unacceptable”, and then the dopey fans and the Toronto media salivate like the barking dogs that they are—a certain tabloid publication included.
This year it’s captain Dion Phaneuf sticking his neck out ...
“We’re definitely a playoff team,” Phaneuf said. “Our goal at the start of this season is to make the playoffs. Anything short of that is unacceptable.”
