Either way, I root for the team and not the players. I have followed professional sports for long enough to be able to get over the loss of the players. Getting to attached to a player(s) is a recipe for disaster.
If you want a cup in the future, you need to buy into total rebuild. If you want perpetually competitive, that is the route that the Leafs have been trying for 40 years and the same one St. Louis did for about a decade. Perpetually competitive means no cup. Detroit doesn't count because they never rebuilt; they were restocking from the word GO.
