Trevor Daley Day-To-Day

After an optional skate on Monday morning, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville indicated that defenseman Trevor Daley will predictably miss Tuesday night’s game against Nashville. However, Quenneville said the injury was “not serious” and referred to Daley as “day-to-day.” He also said the team does not believe Daley was knocked out during Sunday night’s game against Winnipeg.

  1. I hope Daley is OK and makes a full recovery. But I won’t lie. I would be non-disappointed if he were out for a long time. He is a nightmare on defense and I cannot stomach another single shot on goal of his. The man can’t hit the broad side of a barn. Maybe he should get an eye exam? Take more lessons? Retire from the NHL?

  2. Rufus – the comments you make are giving us all blog fatigue. Daley has played 11 years in the NHL and you can’t believe he can play at least 3rd pair minutes. He’s played 15 minutes/game, is break even +/- and is just starting to find his way. Go pick on someone else for a while.

  3. I second that Mr. Hawkfacts, in fact I’ll go ahead and say right now most of us will be really glad we have Daley before this season is over. And people need to get over ,paying 3.5 mil for a 5th D.

  4. I never thought he was knocked out because he was moving. But the look on his face when he was assisted off the ice said “bell rung”, which is consistent with when Q says “not serious” and “day to day”.

  5. I’m not one to comment much on the “D” as I am usually fixated w/ “roll four lines” mantra and on perpetual “March for Morin”, but agree, Daley is adequate at worst and will highly likely improve as the season progresses. I concede that Gustafson & Svedberg performed highly well when Keith was out, and would rather see one of them playing, but that being said, I have zero issues w/ Daley. He is the least of their concerns.

  6. He didn’t look like he had his “bell rung”. He was rolling and moving his feet.
    That’s not what happens when you have a concussion, if you think at NFL and even european football.

  7. I agree with Hawkfacts on TD. By the end of the regular season we will be glad to have TD. It takes time to adjust to the Hawks system. Look at Vermette last year had a hard time learning the system and had 2 GWG in the SCF and a huge GWG against the Ducks. TD will be fine.

  8. Having watched the video this morning, it sure looks like Daley wasn’t knocked cold like I had initially thought at the game Sunday. He was sure in a lot of distress out there on the ice though, and I am pleased the injury was not so serious as it initially appeared. No one likes to see a stretcher come out. Hope the Hawks can jump a Preds team that is playing back to back road games.

    Maybe Mashinter gets a shot at playing D?

    Lets Go Hawks!

  9. As a German guy used to watching the German DEL league, I find myself often astonished about the high level of skull and speed I watch a Hawks game relive.

    Rundblad would be a top 2 D in any German team, he’s a good player.
    But I know, this is the NHL, and he’s playing as a top 6 D only.

    I think to myself, that he gets paid like a such, and that the fans are spoiled by the cups in six years.

    You can’t have six perfect Dmen, Keith and Seabs simply cost to much (D only). Daley’s context was not negotiated with the hawks, remember? So don’t blame them.

    Hawks are in a good spot.
    If you don’t think so, I invite you to watch a DEL game.
    After that, Rundblad is just a small problem…
