SBNation Reacts: Post-Deadline Confidence Check
Following the trade deadline, it is time to see how Sabres fans feel.
This is SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NHL. Each week, SB Nation sends out questions to the most plugged in Buffalo Sabres fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.
According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 31 percent of Sabres fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s down from 42 percent of fans last week but up from 29 percent the week before.
The new level of confidence may come as a result of what the team did at the trade deadline. A majority of Sabres fans gave the team either an C or a D grade for their activity.
While there was a flurry of activity around the April 12 trade deadline, some moves grabbed more attention than others.
According to 31 percent of fans nationally, the Boston Bruins acquiring Taylor Hall was the biggest move at the deadline. Washington’s trade to bring in Anthony Mantha received the next most votes, with 26 percent of the total and Toronto getting Nick Foligno earned 24 percent.
