The Washington Capitals currently only have five defenseman who played for the last season or their current roster and this has no lead to speculatio nthat another move may be in the works for the Capitals.

In a recent report for CSN Mid Atlantic, J.J. Regan touched on the fact that the Capitals could look to bring in a veteran defenseman on a professional tryout offer and he speculated on a few names that could make the list of candidates.

From CSN Mid Atlantic:

There are a few options for Washington if they choose to go that route:

Roman Polak (31 years old), R2016-17 season: 75 games, 4 goals, 7 assists with the Toronto Maple Leafs

Fedor Tyutin (34 years old), L2016-17 season: 69 games, 1 goal, 12 assists with the Colorado Avalanche

Cody Franson (30 years old), R2016-17 season: 68 games, 3 goals, 16 assists with the Buffalo Sabres

Mark Stuart (33 years old), L2016-17 season: 42 games, 2 goals, 2 assists with the Winnipeg Jets

Obviously the names on this list are not world-beaters, however the Capitals now have limited options as we draw closer and closer to the start of the regular season, and the longer they wait the shorter this list will be.
