The Noon Countdown: Revolving D

Counting down the days until the 2014-15 season with a look at the Caps' ever-shifting blueline last season

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

14 - Number of days remaining until the Caps open the 2014-15 season. But it's also...

...the number of defensemen who suited up for at least one game for the Caps' last season, tied with Edmonton for the most in the NHL. That's the most blueliners employed by the Caps in a single season since they dressed 17 back in 2003-04... and hopefully a thing of the past, as newly-inked defensemen Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen should provide a bit more stability to a defensive corps that has been anything but stable in recent years.
