Is No. 17 coming back to the Redskins? No, not Jason Campbell hes staying in Oakland, but former Super Bowl MVP Doug Williams seems like a natural fit in the Redskins front office after he left his post as Tampa Bays director of pro scouting on Tuesday.Williams was in his new post for just a year, having replaced Mark Domenik when the latter was promoted to general manager, taking over for Bruce Allen.Mark and I have sat down and talked about my future, Williams said in a statement. After a lot of thought, I felt that it was the right time for me to look at new options.Allen is now with the Redskins and Williams coming to Washington would make sense. Allen doesnt have a lot of his own people in the front office.Semin Heating Up
Its good to see Alexander Semin finally finding his late spring mojo playing for Team Russia at the World Championships in Germany.Semin scored a goal and two assists in Russias 4-1 win over Kazakhstan.Even though he was awful in the Capitals-Montreal series, the guess here is that Semin would have got going had Washington advanced to the second round and play a team that is not as sharp defensively. Just a guess, though.Carlson Still Playing
The Hershey Bears return to the ice after a nearly two-week layoff tonight when they start their AHL Eastern Conference final series against Manchester.Defenseman John Carlson is going for a unique hat trick consecutive Calder Cups to go with his World Junior Championship title.Its incredible, the things Ive had the opportunity to do, Carlson said. Just looking back on what Ive already been through in the last year and a half or so, its been great.This is most likely the last time Carlson will be playing in the AHL. He established himself with the Capitals this year and is undoubtedly a top six blue liner going into camp in the fall.Sign Of Things To Come
USA Todays Mel Antonen summed up the impact of Stephen Strasburg on the Nationals minor league teams, calling him a one-man stimulus package, for the clubs.After selling out stadiums for Harrisburg in the Eastern League, Strasburg has moved on to Syracuse of the International League. His first start drew a record 13,766 last Friday.When we draw like this early, it can be the difference between a break-even and a profitable season, Syracuse GM John Simone said.Harrisburg spokesman Terry Byrom told Antonen that Strasburg is responsible for a 15 percent bump in team store sales, bringing the total already to 100,000.
