Both players have another year left on their respective contracts after this season, with Scuderi carrying a $3.38 million cap hit and Daley a $3.3 million cap hit.
In Daley, 32, the Penguins get a player who is four years younger and should provide a bit of a boost to the struggling Pittsburgh blue-line corps. Daley is more of a puck-mover than Scuderi, and the Penguins need that.
Scuderi is a gritty veteran who can kill penalties. He arrives in Chicago with Stanley Cup rings earned with Pittsburgh in 2009 and Los Angeles in 2012.
