Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 16/NASL Week 11 (summer break)

The revealing good news/bad news scenario in this week’s Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings is found in this past weekend’s Vancouver Whitecaps match.

Kianz Froese came on as a sub and scored his first ever MLS goal in a 2-1 win over the New York Red Bulls.

But, in that same game, Froese and fellow Canadian Russell Teibert played a grand total of 21 minutes; and the average number of minutes that the Whitecaps give to Canadians on a per-game basis continues to slide. After giving just 21 minutes out of a potential 990 to Canadians this past weekend, the Whitecaps’ Can-con numbers took a beating. On the same weekend that Froese scored, the Whitecaps’ Canadian-minutes-per-game slipped below the 100 mark.

For the next month, the Power Rankings will be somewhat imbalanced, as the MLS players continue to rack up minutes while the NASL players are on a break till the 20-game fall season kicks off in July. But, really, will any MLS teams be able to get up to the 334.2 minutes-for-Canadians-per-game average that FC Edmonton posted in the 10-game spring season?
