Strangely winning is not the only thing that makes you relevant when you are a popular franchise. Look at the Red Sox, they didn't win for a long time but they have not stopped being revelvant. Hell even after the winning ways of the Devils, the Avs and Stars, they fell back down and the Habs are more relevant even if they sucked for a long time, even after a crappy season last year. When you are in a hockey hot bed, you have the fortune that teams from other places, don't. In a shaky maket, you have to win or else.
