Obviously finishing last for a couple seasons will have a cost in attendance and merchandise sales, but all of those fans will come back, and then some, once the rebuild pays off and the team is a stanley cup contender with superstars on the roster.

Good businessmen are willing to invest in the long-term future of their club. The Molsons? They sold the team for ~150 million and then bought it back 10 years later for ~550 million. They didn't build their business empire, they inherited it. I'm not sure they have the saavy to think long-term.
