This reminds me a lot like the delay of gratification. Studies have shown that children who are able to delay their immediate gratification will be more successful in life than those who cannot. Purchasing vs. saving is a practical example.
So here we're at a cross-roads in which fans have to choose between their need for watching their team win, or delaying this need and allowing for a proper rebuild. By satisfying this gratification, the fans are willing to accept a roster that's not quite cup contending but generally competitive enough to win enough hockey games to satisfy.
Whereas one who's willing to delay this gratification is willing to forgo competition and accept the means to gather elite talents that will eventually help build a cup contending team and dynasty level competition.
