The 2021 season has been far from smooth, both for the Buffalo Sabres and the rest of the league.
In the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, 49 percent of Sabres fans said they are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That number has held steady over the last week, but is down from 59 percent two weeks ago.
Because of the up and down nature of the Sabres’ season, 76 percent of Buffalo fans said they are concerned about the team’s depth.
The biggest issue facing the Sabres and every other team in the NHL is clearly problems surrounding COVID-19. Teams around the league have had to reschedule games and deal with players missing after testing positive. However, even with that less than one-quarter of fans around the country think the NHL needs a league-wide pause to the season.
