Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 32/NASL Week 26

506

With the majority of MLS teams off for the international window — while NASL had a full slate of games through this past weekend – we are seeing some more balance brought to the rankings.

With NASL having a shorter schedule than MLS, this was basically a catch-up week for the second division, which gives us a better idea on how NASL teams rank against the MLS sides when it comes to giving first-team minutes to Canadian players. And, we see Toronto FC’s Jonathan Osorio fall out of top spot in the Canadian minutes-played ranks. Atlanta’s Kyle Porter retakes the lead.

But, in MLS action, Montreal did play twice this past week — and, the Impact’s positive trend continues. Since Mauro Biello took over as coach, the number of minutes played by Canadians has increased significantly. Patrice Bernier, frozen out of the team by former coach Frank Klopas, got 115 minutes of playing time over the most recent two Impact matches. Bernier’s return to the team has been maybe the most concrete sign of this change.
