Of course Leafs fans tolerated the rebuild, you think they didn't?
They've been dying for one after Sundin left in 2008. That embarked the start of the 5 year rebuild. They too, were like the Rangers who had declining vets on large contracts. It took years to let go of the deadweight and now they're finally getting rewarded for being patient.
Rangers fans wanted rebuild after Leetch left, but Jaromir Jagr and Henrik Lundqvist had different ideas. Of course they can handle it.
