The top of the organization in Washington is getting a little crowded.

Owner Daniel Snyder has added league office executive Brian LaFemina as COO and President of Business Operations. In that role Stephon Gilmore Jersey , LaFemina will聽oversee all club business operations and report directly to Snyder.

鈥淚 am thrilled to welcome Brian to the Washington Redskins,鈥?Snyder said in a team-issued statement. 鈥淏rian has been one of the most highly regarded NFL executives amongst league ownership for many years because of his deep understanding of our business, his focus on partner relationships and his genuine belief that fans must be at the center of every decision we make. Brian is coming to Washington with fresh thinking and big ideas to implement, and I have full confidence that with Brian鈥檚 addition and with Bruce Allen continuing as team President, the Redskins鈥?success will continue to grow, both on and off the field.鈥?/p>

LaFemina said in the same press release that Snyder approached LaFemina “about a year ago” to discuss the possibility of hiring him.

鈥淲orking with Dan and Bruce to develop a new, dynamic stadium that matches the vibrancy of this organization and its fan base will be an exciting challenge and one of our top priorities,” LaFemina said.

The fact that LaFemina will report directly to Snyder (and that the press release contains no quote from Allen) suggests that Allen at a minimum has been undermined by the move Carl Banks Jersey , and at most could be on the way out. Indeed, if Allen were getting done everything he needs to get done, as the president of the team, there would be no need to hire a President of Business Operations/COO who reports directly to Snyder.

The fact that the discussions with LaFemina began roughly a year ago hints that Snyder possibly began looking for someone to do many of the things Allen was doing at roughly the same time as Allen clumsily fired G.M. Scot McCloughan and took plenty of flak from fans and the media for chasing a successful football executive from the organization on dubious grounds, at best.

Thus, the move will serve only to fuel speculation that Allen will indeed be leaving, possibly for the Raiders. (Allen has denied that he’s returning to Oakland.) At the time Russ Brandon abruptly resigned from the Bills, some in league circles said that there had been rumors that Snyder was trying to lure Brandon from Buffalo.

Regardless Kenny Stills Jersey , there’s now a new high-level executive in Washington whose job duties seem to immediately overlap with Allen’s. If the organizational chart isn’t big enough for both of them, Allen indeed could be leaving, either voluntary or otherwise.

The Golden Knights had modest goals in their first season.

Put a credible team on the ice while attracting fans unused to a major pro league in Vegas, where gambling and big-name entertainers have ruled the desert city.

Nobody said anything the playoffs, let alone making noise in the postseason.

”It’s unreal,” coach Gerard Gallant said after the Knights beat the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 on Tuesday and became the first expansion team in NHL history to sweep their first playoff series. ”It all started when we went 8-2 in our first 10 games.”

Now, they’re playing with house money.

”We’re sky-high right now,” said Brayden McNabb Ethan Pocic Jersey , whose second-period goal proved the series-winner against his former team.

Next up is either Anaheim or San Jose. The Sharks are going for a sweep of their own with a 3-0 series lead.

”It doesn’t matter who we play,” Gallant said. ”We’ll have some time to get ready for them.”

Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will get some much-needed rest after backstopping two shutouts in the series. He stopped 31 shots as the Knights finished off their fourth one-goal victory against the Kings.

”We’re still a few wins away from this being a great story,” Fleury said.

The Knights are the second team to win their first four playoff games, joining the 1970 Pittsburgh Penguins.

”We came in with a chip on our shoulder,” forward Jonathan Marchessault said. ”When we play the right way, I think we can go far, but we cannot look too far right now. We’ve got to look at the next game and be able to cash in the rest that we’re going to have here.”

Fleury survived a tense third period at Staples Center.

With their fans shouting encouragement, the desperate Kings put the pressure on. Having pulled goalie Jonathan Quick for an extra attacker late Montravius Adams Jersey , Dustin Brown’s shot in the high slot was stopped by Fleury’s glove.

Brown also hit the left post with 10 minutes to go in the third, typical of the close calls that Fleury turned away with seeming ease. His goals-against average is a career-low 0.66 and he stopped 127 of 130 shots in the series.

Quick made 20 saves on Tuesday and gave up seven goals to Vegas, one of the league’s higher scoring teams.

”Both goaltenders were excellent,” Gallant said. ”We got a little bit more puck luck and we cashed in at the right time.”

Vegas is just the third expansion team since 1968-69 to clinch a playoff berth.

Suddenly, the Knights’ goals are unlimited.

”We didn’t to expect to do this at the beginning of the year,” left wing David Perron said, ”but it feels great and we’re going to enjoy it.”
