They last won a title in the 60s. Its one reason I am not a Leafs fan. The heart can only take so much futility.
It's only futility if you expect a championship. You watch and enjoy the regular season. If the team makes the playoffs, you watch and enjoy those. If the team wins the championship, that's a nice little bonus. But I see no reason to expect a championship or even to expect playoffs.
