SB Nation Reacts: You Good With The Commish?

Do you think Gary Bettman is doing a good job?



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

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.

Two-thirds of Calgary Flames fans said they are confident the team is headed in the right direction, according to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey. If there is improvement in the team, most fans expect it to come from moves made by general manager Brad Treliving, who received a vote of confidence from 83 percent of fans. From the same group, only 50 percent have confidence in head coach Geoff Ward.

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.
