This is SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NHL. Each week, SB Nation sends out questions to the most plugged in Minnesota Wild fans, and fans across the country.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, a full 100 percent of responding Minnesota Wild fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s up from 82 percent last week and 88 percent the week before.

“Sure, but that’s probably a small sample size,” I hear you saying. One way to ensure your voice is heard is to join SB Nation Reacts by signing up here. You’ll be able to take part in the no-obligation weekly surveys and help us take the pulse of the Wild and NHL fan base.

While Wild fans are focused in on the team, one of the biggest stories around the league came from a city that doesn’t have an NHL team at all.

Last month the league had to adjust its schedule and delay the start of the second of two outdoor games played on the shores of Lake Tahoe after the warm weather created poor ice conditions. Despite the issues, fans around the country still care about playing the annual outdoor games.

On top of simply caring about the games, a clear majority of fans believe the extra work needed both by the league and players is worth it in order to make these games work.

What do you think, Wild fans? Do you care about outdoor games as a whole? Just the Winter Classic? Or just outdoor games that feature the Wild? How about the direction the Wild are headed?

To vote in the Reacts surveys and have your voice heard each week, sign up here. Join this week to take part in questions like “Which aspect of the Wild roster are you most excited about?” and “Are you excited about the Wild’s prospect pipeline?”
