Inescapably Canadian Power Rankings: MLS Week 26/USL Week 24

First off, let’s salute Toronto FC’s Jonathan Osorio, as well as Indy Eleven’s Karl Ouimette, Swope Park Rangers’ Amer Didic, Bethlehem Steel’s Chris Nanco and OKC Energy’s Marco Bustos, who all found the back of the net this week.

But, this is a good time to compare where we are this year compared to this time last year, in terms of minutes played by Canadians in North America’s first and second division.

At this time last year, 26 Canadians had played in MLS, five with more than 1,000 minutes, one with more than 2,000 minutes.
This year, 29 Canadians have played in MLS, seven with more than 1,000 minutes, one with more than 2,000 minutes (take a bow, Samuel Piette). So, no shaking it; Canadian content in MLS is up this year.

When it comes to second divisions, it gets complicated. There were two second divisions last season — USL and NASL. This year,  there was only one. Last year, 68 Canadians played in USL, and 15 played in NASL. But two — Max Tissot and Ben McKendry — played in both leagues. So, in total, 81 Canadians played in the second divisions, four with more than 2,000 minutes, 34 with more than 1,000 minutes.

This year, 71 Canadians have played in USL, four with more than 2,000 minutes and 29 with more than 1,000 minutes.

So, the loss of NASL — especially FC Edmonton — has impacted the Canadian player pool in the second division, with 10 fewer Canadians appearing in second-division soccer so far this year over the same period of time last year.

    And just as importantly, if not more so, is what they did on the field when they got their chance. Osorio, Kaye & Davies have made the leap and Piette is a solid, dependable player with some weeks (like this one) up over the 400 mark.
    Osorio … what can I say. DP him TFC or he will be gone. Maybe all those trade rumours for Altidore are to make room to keep Osorio? With his combination of consistency & high level of performance he is clearly DP level.
