Time to admit we are a horrible hockey team.
The fanbase will move on when a new era beings. This is, for all intents and purposes, the "post-trade" era. This team is currently defined by those trades because those trades built this team, while also building a SC winner out in LA as well. Those are the kind of pivotal moves that have an effect for a very, very long time, so it's naturally gonna take a while for the fans to move on.

The first step will probably need to be Holmgren stepping down. He is tied to those trades now, so while he's running the show the team will be tied to them.
