Intrinsically Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 5/NASL Week 2/USL Week 2

Former Canadian U-17 and U-20 player of the year Ballou Jean-Yves Tabla scored his first MLS goal on Saturday, giving the Montreal Impact a 2-1 lead that it would later relinquish and have to settle for a tie in Chicago. Tabla’s goal was likely the biggest in-game moment for any Canadian in MLS this past weekend, but, yeah, I know a lot of you reading this are still wondering just where his national-team loyalty lies. His refusal to join the Canadian U-20 team for the CONCACAF Championship created some waves in this country’s soccer community, and now we watch this young talent with a “will he or won’t he?” mentality. Of course, being a Canadian soccer supporter means that you’re totally used to this. So, just another day at the office, really.

In other news, despite the fact his team lost its USL debut 3-2 to Saint Louis, congratulations have to go out to the Ottawa’s Fury Eddie Edward on scoring his first goal for the team. Before joining the Fury midway through the 2016 season, Edward spent four and a half seasons with the Puerto Rico Islanders and FC Edmonton combined, and didn’t find the back of the net. (Though, I clearly remember several chances, and what went down as an own goal to the opposition that was created by Edward).

Here are the rankings of Canadian minutes in MLS, NASL and USL this week. This marks the first week where every team in all three leagues have played at least one game each, so we’re getting a better feel of which Canadians are going to see regular playing time.

    So Orlando has more Canadian minutes per game than the Canadian teams. They also have the top 2 players in number of minutes played, despite playing one less game than each of the Canadian teams. And on top of all that, their results have been better (2 ppg) than all of the Canadian teams. Well done Niki Budalic, keep up the good work in Orlando.
