Blackhawks Community Survey - July 2019
A survey for Blackhawks fans to gauge the confidence in the franchise.
This is the July installment of the Second City Hockey community survey. As a reminder, we will be publishing monthly opportunities for Blackhawks fans to participate in surveys that will measure the confidence fans have in the direction the team is taking, the coaching staff and front office decisions.
A few notes on the FanPulse survey series
- There will be a question on the state of the NHL each month.
- A question regarding the confidence in the coaching staff will start in September.
- We will be creating and posting charts that track responses to two questions over the course of the 2019-20 season - your confidence in the direction the team is taking and the coaching staff. We are looking forward to sharing them with you.
- FanPulse surveys will be posted on the first of each month./
