Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 28/NASL Week 22

With the Atlanta Silverbacks on a bye week, there was a chance that Kyle Porter, who has led the Canadian-minutes-played ranking over the last few weeks, would be overtaken.

And he was: Porter now slips to third, with FC Edmonton’s Eddie Edward taking over as the Canadian who has played the most minutes in either MLS or NASL this season.

But, while Canadian minutes are trending downward, there were a few bright spots: FC Edmonton started three Canadians on Sunday and came up with a win over the Tampa Bay Rowdies. All three of those Canadians — Edward, Mallan Roberts and Allan Zebie — played the full 90. And Tesho Akindele scored a pretty goal for FC Dallas in a weekend victory.

This season, 39 Canadians have played in MLS or NASL. Of those, 36 are currently active. But, while 39 seems like a nice healthy number, it needs to be noted that just 13 of those 39 — one third — have played 1,000 minutes or more this season. To put that in perspective, 1,000 minutes equals just a little over 11 full games.

Here are the rankings for this week:

    It’s disheartening seeing Boakai so low on this list. Am I right in thinking that is mostly due to the coaches decisions rather than injury or national team (like Pan Ams) duty? Do you (Steven) think he deserves to be a regular in the starting 11 or is he not ready yet?
