Like, come on guys. Just as the Mike Babcock and Columbus, just as he did, and the Bill Peters in Lethbridge of the CHL left the news cycle we now have a new one, courtesy of the just arrived in town: Wenatchee Wild!

The rumblings didn't last long, as the WHL announced hours later that Wenatchee head coach Kevin Constantine has been suspended.

Constantine was suspended on Sunday after the WHL’s independent reporting channel received a complaint regarding his conduct. Constantine is not permitted to have any contact with any member of the organization, including players, while the matter is being investigated.

The CRA is investigating the Greater Toronto Hockey League for corruption and I'm not surprised. Teams are "bought" and "sold" like it's a giant swap meet as rich parents buy their kids way into teams.
