The success or failure of any team is dependent on a number of factors. Not only do the players need to be at the top of their game, but coaches and the front office need to put them in the best position to win.
According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 75 percent of Chicago Blackhawks fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That is up from 60 percent last week and 50 percent two weeks ago.
With the continued rise in confidence, a majority of Blackhawks fans believe the leadership is in place to push the team in the right direction.
From a national perspective, confidence is very split. Just over half of hockey fans around the league said they are confident in Gary Bettman as NHL commissioner. The mark has dropped a few points from 56 percent over last summer.
