The Toronto Maple Leafs have their work cut out for them.
Winston Churchill once said, "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm."
If this is indeed the case, the Leafs may be successful right now, according to the definition.
After all, they have battled back on numerous occasions to halt losing streaks, recently enjoyed four consecutive wins to start 2012 off with a bang and stayed above .500 all season.
Unfortunately, being truly successful at the NHL level is ultimately measured by a team's ability to reach the postseason and compete for the Stanley Cup.
Once again, reality has set in on Leafs Nation, which suggests that there is plenty of hockey yet to be played that will determine whether they end up as successful as some are expecting them to be.
The Leafs have had trouble with consistency and have thus suffered a lack of confidence as a result.
After a bit of a wake up call and a trip to the school of hard knocks, are there any lessons to be learned?
So what do the Maple Leafs need to change to attempt a run into the playoffs?
