The ski link is planned to connect the top of daybreak to the solitude parking lot. How does the timberline lift help you get there faster? My reasoning for 6 lifts and multiple roads is already in this thread above. If you want to read it.
Are you saying that there is a plan to pop in a feeder lift to the top of Daybreak? Where is this plan documented?
For some reason I didn't think the base was at the top of Daybreak, but you are correct. My bad. If so, it still isn't THAT bad, but it will take some time from the Canyons base (skiers from there will want to get an earlier start) unless they just bus skiers up there. On some powder days, when 9990 is closed for blasting, I head in that direction skiing Mystic Pines and then heading over to Dreamcatcher (which never seems to have a line). For those coming from Solitude the SkiLink is a home run, since the mountains on that side of the Canyons get fewer skiers (most one day tourists don't venture far from Red Pine) and generally have zero lift lines. A few years ago there was no lodge on that side of the property, but now there is no problem staying warm and dining at Cloud Dine. Daybreak probably has the fewest skiers on it compared to the other 8 mountains (I ski a couple of runs on it once a year with the kids before getting bored).
