Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 25/NASL Week 19

In earlier instalments of this weekly feature, we’ve criticized the Montreal Impact for the low number of first-team minutes that they’ve given to Canadian players.

So, in fairness, it needs to be noted that a milestone was hit this week. The Impact is no longer the weakest of the five Canadian first- or-second-division sides when it comes to Canadians’ first-team minutes. On average, the Vancouver Whitecaps now give Canadians the lowest minutes-per-game of any of the five north-of-the-border MLS or NASL sides.

Feel free to keep bashing away at the club-vs.-country debate. There’s no arguing that the Whitecaps are enjoying MLS success at the moment, as they are battling for the Supporters’ Shield.
