Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 29/NASL Week 23

Toronto FC’s Jonathan Osorio — thanks to starting two games this week — has taken back the lead in our ranking of minutes played by Canadians on either MLS or NASL teams.

Osorio, Atlanta Silverback Kyle Porter and FC Edmonton’s Eddie Edward have broken away from the pack and look like strong bets to finish the season as the top three minute-getters, barring injuries or coach’s decisions to rotate squads.

Notable this week: First off, Kyle Bekker’s goal for the Montreal Impact this week. Bekker was the unfortunate target of plenty of Canadian-soccer-fan vitriol, because he was selected to coach Benito Floro’s roster for the recent World Cup qualifiers against Belize. Osorio was left off. It was the coach’s decision, and the coach should have taken the heat. But Bekker also got a lot of heat on social media and message boards and that’s unfortunate, because he wasn’t the one who picked himself to the team. So, great to see him score a goal and make his first real mark in MLS since he was traded by FC Dallas to Montreal.

Second, Porter scored for Atlanta in Saturday’s win over Carolina, a win that keeps the Silverbacks in the thick of the NASL post-season hunt.

The rankings can be found below:
