08:31 AM ET 11.02 | The CHLPA won't have Georges Laraque in its most prominent role any longer. Georges Laraque is stepping down from the controversy-plagued union that's been trying to organize Canada's junior hockey players. He wasn't alone. The mystery spokesman for the union also quit Thursday night, as did the union's lawyers in Alberta and Quebec. All that's left at this point, are questions. ... For the past 48 hours there's been furious speculation that Derek Clarke, who's handled media for the CHLPA, could be Randy Gumbley -- a former junior coach and team owner with a penchant for fraud. ... TSN hockey insider Dave Naylor reported Thursday that he had interviewed Clarke over the telephone on three occasions and "it was a different Derek Clarke" the third time than it was the first two.
