Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings, MLS season-end/NASL 1 week to go

2

If Kyle Porter plays 22 minutes or more for Atlanta in the final week of the NASL season, he is guaranteed to be the Canadian minutes leader in MLS or NASL this season.This is the penultimate instalment of the Power Rankings, with the MLS regular season having wrapped up this past weekend and NASL having just one week to go (save for FC Edmonton, which has a bye on the final week of the season).

But, Porter will also take it if he plays nine minutes or more and Ottawa’s Mason Trafford doesn’t play at least 78 minutes in his final game of the season next week. But, if neither Trafford or Porter put on minutes next week, Edmonton’s Eddie Edward — who has finished his season and currently has the lead — will be the minutes champ.

Because the MLS season has ended and our two “maybes” — Philadelphia’s Steven Vitoria and Columbus’s Ethan Finlay — never made a move to play for Canada, we have eliminated them from the list. Both — as players who could hypothetically play for this country — were put in a special category throughout the year. But, now that the year has done, the point is moot.

    Great list man. Thanks for digging up all those numbers. It saves lazy sots like me from having to do it. I owes ya beer.

    Do you have, or know of any, year over year tracking of minutes at each level? Total minutes for Canucks at MLS / NASL level?l

      In Plastic Pitch issue 1, we did a study of Canadian minutes in MLS from year 1 to present day, and then pro-rated them for the number of teams.
