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

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 92 percent of Red Wings fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s up from 81 percent of fans last week and 73 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 Red Wings fans gave the team an A 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.
