Inescapably Canadian Power Rankings: That’s a wrap!

Well, with no Canadian teams in the MLS playoffs, at least Alphonso Davies put on a heck of a farewell show.

In his final game with the Vancouver Whitecaps before he makes the move to Bayern Munich, Davies scored twice in a win over the Portland Timbers. As well, Canadian Simon Colyn made his MLS debut in that game. He became the 30th Canadian to see the field in an MLS game in 2018.

An iron-man award needs to go to Montreal’s Samuel Piette, who hit the 3,000-minute mark and appeared in every one of the Impact’s 34 regular-season matches.

In the end, Toronto FC just nipped Vancouver for the most minutes played by Canadians, a total of 7,602 for the Reds compared to 7,590 for the Caps.

 

Here are the rankings after the final regular-season week of MLS play:

    What strikes me and gives me the best hope I’ve had in a decade is that the top 5 are ALL young and Larin and a few others are at or beyond that level as well.

    Well I could wait for MLS if/when they put up the stats for everyone but I have all the data and a spreadsheet so why don’t I just do it up and put it out? The numbers may be off here or there but it is as accurate as I can make it for now. Let me know if you want it done again next year. We have improved since 2017.
    ———————————————————-
    To nobody’s surprise Osorio gets the “Captain Consistency” award. Davies in at second and Kaye with his breakout season takes third (I hope the rumours are true and MDS brings him to Vancouver). Henry in with a solid 300+ number at 4th and “Iron Man” Piette at 258 rounds out the top 5. Johnson, Chapman & Hamilton round out the group over 200.
    More players and higher numbers than last year. Onwards!!!!

    Davies did a great farewell game and Henry is making his case to the new coach to be a regular in 2019. Osorio continues his consistent high level performances. I’m hoping to get all the Canadian stats for the full year and see how our guys stack up against the MLS averages. Sad day for me as none of the 3 Canadian teams made the playoffs. It has been a while since that happened. I guess it shows we are progressing when we expect them to make it every year.
