Daze?

Eric Daze is a RFA after this season and is set to return soon from back surgery that he underwent in early December. I think it would be worthwhile for Gainey to investigate the possibility of acquiring Daze as I am sure his value is down right now and he may not cost a whole lot. It should be noted that the back problems that Daze has had this season are unrelated to past back problems and Daze sounds optimistic about his reurn in early March.

I think Daze would be a fantastic addition to the Koivu/Zednik line as he has great hands and draws alot of attention in front of the oppositions net thus creating a little more space in the offensive zone for Koivu and Zednik.

When Souray returns I beleive Daze's true value would be realized as he would provide a great screen for Souray, not to mention Daze's ability to swat in loose rebounds.

I'm not sure what Chicago would want in return but if it is not too much then I would hope Gainey would give this idea some serious consideration.
