While the Leafs work on these matters the memes are coming in fast. Almost as soon as they lost memes started pouring in. The internet has a keen ability to add insult to injury and those who dislike the Leafs wasted no time.

First off, the infamous Spider-Man meme depicting years of Leafs playoff failures.

Then the backhanded insult.

Which was followed by the feigning of sympathy by BarDown.

And finally, the most brutal one of them all…
