At what point is it not an overreaction?

People should accept that the team is terrible down to the core. We had our chance of rebuilding properly, but threw that away for a quick chance at the playoffs. The Kessel deal was the worst thing that has happened to the Leafs since I became a fan.



This.
The bolded is the only thing in your post that matters. The team is 3 years in, no team goes from nothing to contender in 3 years.

If the Kessel deal was the worst thing that has happened since you became a fan then your fandom cant go back too far. Luongo for an aging somewhat useless Clark, what became Couture for Toskala... Not sure they are better than the Kessel trade considering the returns were aging and useless.
