Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 13/NASL Week 9

Before the season, the Montreal Impact waived homegrown defender Karl Ouimette.

The New York Red Bulls picked up the Canadian and, over the last month, he has cemented a put-his-name-in-ink starting position with his new team.

Ouimette now has five appearances, four of them starts, for the Red Bulls. He’s played a total of 412 minutes. And that’s significantly more minutes this season than — ahem — all of the Canadians combined on the Impact roster.

In eight MLS games — Canadians have only accounted for a total of 242 minutes of playing time with the Impact. Ouimette is the lone Canadian on the Red Bulls, and he’s got 170 more minutes of playing time than the Impact’s Canadians. Ouimette has played in five games, the Impact’s Canadians have had chances — most of them unfulfilled — to play in eight MLS games.

As the Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings continue through the MLS and NASL seasons, we’ll have to keep an eye on Ouimette-vs.-all-of-his-countrymen-on-his-old-team. Who will have more minutes at the end of the season?

    I look forward to this weekly summary and enjoy the fact the list is slowly growing larger. To have 33 Canadians playing in professional teams in North America would have been a dream a mere decade ago – that is 3 starting 11s.
    Yet despite 33 professional players on the list, it is in the details where one would see a developmental disparity still remains. The most obvious is this week’s position 21. By starting and playing two full games, John Smits his overtaken a mass of players. One hundred and eighty minutes puts him smack in the middle of the table. Basically the list is a group in the starting 11, ten bubble players and the rest are all on the periphery.

      A decade ago, we didn’t have NASL. And that’s why the numbers are as high as they are. Take the NASL numbers out — especially the way FCE and Ottawa pad the stats — and, all of a sudden, the Canadians-played figures drop dramatically.

    Almost forgot, Welcome Back Will Johnson! He’s come along way since his broken leg.

    The only way those Canadian boys on the Impact squad will log any minutes, is through the CCL. Better hope for another long run.
