Will it be canceled? Pushed way back, or will positive come in the form of keeping it and converting some to xlr to offset some 757 flying?
My gut tells me they still come just don’t know when

Was that a scientific poll?

Unless, I completely missed something, DL has not parked nor as made any internal/rumored announcements of parking the 757s.
Only the MD88 and MD90 is officially done.
The reality is that there has been nothing officially communicated about the status and timing of any future deliveries from Airbus to DL.
This is all subject to negotiations on both sides.
DL really has no need for any future deliveries until at least Summer 2022
Airbus can't just completely shutdown and/or suspend all deliveries to all customers without a lot of ramifications to their financial situation or supply chain
Both sides will likely have to meet in the middle and come up with some terms/financial arrangements that are amicable to both parties.
The orders will all happen, just on a revised time frame.
My speculation is that there is likely more ability to deffer and spread out the balance of the A321 CEO, A321 NEO, and A359 deliveries versus the A220 & A339 deliveries where even with reduced monthly rates, DL has disproportionate amount of the backlog of these types.
