MLive’s Ansar Khan continues his set of Red Wings player profiles by examining defenseman Trevor Daley’s 2019-2020 season outlook this morning. Khan believes that Daley won’t finish the season as a member of the Red Wings organization:
2019-20 outlook: The Red Wings signed Daley to a three-year, $9.5 million free-agent contract on July 1, 2017, hoping the veteran, mobile, puck-mover would help boost a declining defense. Now, they will look to move Daley for a draft pick prior to the trade deadline.
Until then, the 15-year veteran figures to play regularly, if healthy, on the third pairing, possibly with Jonathan Ericsson, his partner for much of last season when they were in the lineup together.
