Remember: Most of us were thinking barely squeaking into the playoffs was the best case scenario.

NHL: Tampa Bay Lightning at Toronto Maple Leafs Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Cheer up, Leafs fans. You know what they say.

Some games in life are bad,
They can really make you mad.
Other games just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't grumble, give a whistle!

And this'll help things turn out for the best
Always look on the bright side of life!

For hockey is quite absurd,
And the lottery’s the final word.
You must always face the off season with a bow!
Forget about your loss and always give your teeth a little floss.
Enjoy it, it's the last week anyhow!

So always look on the bright side of a seasons death!
Just before they draw that terminal breath.

Sports are a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Hockey’s a laugh and the game’s a joke, it's true,
You'll see it's all a show,
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you!
