Maple Leaf Dejection

We all had our hopes up. Actually, we all knew it would end soon and the fall would be rough. A few weeks ago I posted this quote from

The following are factual statements: the Toronto Maple Leafs are in first place in the Eastern Conference, they've scored twice as many goals as they've allowed, their penalty killing is at 90 percent and Clarke MacArthur is on pace for 109 goals this season.
But here is today's latest from the same site:
Michael Frolik had a goal and two assists Wednesday to help the Florida Panthers beat Toronto 4-1 and extend the Maple Leafs' losing streak to seven games. The Maple Leafs' losing streak is their longest since opening last season at 0-6-1. They have lost 10 of their past 11 games and are 3-for-39 on the power play in their last 10 games.
Ouch. I guess the only thing worse than opening the season in seven games without a win (last year), is this year's trick of acting like the Oilers of the 80's for a little while and then tearing the big 'S' off their chests to expose the reality that it was all just a cheap Halloween costume. Why do I endure as a fan?
