    Unfortunately not, daisy chaining refers more to firewire products and linking them into a system. A two year old time capsule has almost the same specs as a current airport extreme. The main difference is the ability to broadcast in both g and n networks simultaneously. this creates a faster network as your network is only as fast as the slowest device connected to it. What you could do to speed up your network marginally, is to connect an airport extreme and set the time capsule to join the network. This would ensure you can take advantage of the new routers that broadcast in two modes simultaneously
