At the end of the video, around the 7:30 mark or so, Dailey is victimized for a goal in a situation that probably could have been avoided with proper positioning.
The reports on Dailey are "mobile for a big man." The qualifier is definitely noteworthy

He was a big, hard hitting, offensive defenseman. If he was great defensively, he'd go in the main draft, but I don't think he was bad either. Not surprising his positioning was a weakness, especially early in his career.
