8 - Number of days remaining until the start of the Capitals’ 2019-20 season. But it’s also...

...the number of Capitals who scored at least 40 points last season. Only four other teams had as many or more 40-point players on their roster in 2018-19; both Ottawa and Toronto also boasted eight, while Tampa and San Jose led the League with nine apiece.

Of those eight Caps, seven of them will return this season, with Brett Connolly (46 points) the only offseason departure.
