The City of Ottawa perfectly trolls the Toronto Maple Leafs for their latest postseason failure.

Once the NHL expanded beyond the Original Six in 1967, the Toronto Maple Leafs had no chance.

The Leafs took one look at the Pittsburgh Penguins and collectively decided they were never going to raise Lord Stanley’s Cup again. After facing the hated Montreal Canadiens in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since the dawn of the internet, you just knew the top-seeded Leafs were going to lose in embarrassing fashion to the Habs. It was so bad the City of Ottawa trolled them.

In a public service announcement to let us know COVID is still alive, the Leafs are absolutely not.

The City of Ottawa has way too much fun at the Toronto Maple Leafs’ expense

When you have won as many playoff series since 2004 as the Atlanta Thrashers, you have every right to be trolled on Twitter by your nation’s capital in a COVID-19 PSA. Since 1991, MLB‘s Toronto Blue Jays and the NBA‘s Toronto Raptors have combined to win three more league championships than the NHL’s most snakebitten franchise. You used to be good, what happened?

The beloved Montreal Expos have come and gone since the Leafs last won a Stanley Cup. Their greatest player’s son is now starring for the only MLB team Canada has left. The City of Atlanta has lost two expansion franchises to Canadian metropolises much smaller than it since the last time the Leafs won it all. It is really starting to feel like 1967 occurred during the Jurassic Period.

Once the California Golden Seals were birthed, the Leafs’ Stanley Cup chances died immediately.
