Sadly, Detroit has a bunch of bandwagon fans. The current fan base hasn't had to endure any real hardship, so they will probably bail at the 1st sign of trouble.
I will stick around, but hardcore NHL fans are an extreme minority. This isn't Toronto.
I really hope Holland isn't doing this because Illitch wants to make as much money as possible. The guy already owns half of Detroit, he can live without the Joe being packed every night.
Rebuild and make it as quick and painless as possible. 2-3 years before they are a playoff team, and 4-5 years before they are contending for the cup.
