Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NHL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Red Wings fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

As the NHL prepares to restart the 2020 season, fans have reassessed where they think their favorite team stands.

In the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, NHL fans were asked if they believe their favorite team is a serious championship contender. Or, if their team is no longer playing, who that fanbase will turn to now.

The Red Wings are one of seven teams that won’t be participating in the rest of the season. Instead, Detroit fans have decided to spread their fandom among teams around the league.

J.J. - I’m going to chalk this up to a lot of folks wanting to see a team built by Steve Yzerman being successful and not rooting for Tyler Johnson to win a cup, but I’d also put the Leafs on there as teams that want to see win a trip to obscurity way more than I want to see them win one to immortality. At least you animals didn’t put the Bruins on here.
