Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings: The final countdown

595

As MLS began its playoffs, NASL finished the final week of its regular season. So, this will be the final instalment of our power rankings.

Here’s a primer:

• Kyle Porter (Atlanta Silverbacks) is the top Canadian in terms of minutes played. His full 90 this past weekend against Ottawa got him the top spot.
• The top three Canadians in terms of minutes played (Porter, Mason Trafford and Eddie Edward) are all NASL players. Even though NASL teams play 30-game schedules — as opposed to MLS teams and their 34-game schedules — it was the Canadians in NASL who came out on top in terms of minutes played.
• The top MLS minute-getter (fourth overall) was Jonathan Osorio.
• Only five teams (FC Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto FC, San Antonio and Atlanta) had a Canadian minutes-per-game average higher than 90 (or one full match for a Canadian per game). Edmonton was the runaway leader, with an average of 282.6 Canadian minutes per game.
• Only 13 Canadians played 1350 minutes (15 full games) in NASL or MLS this season.

    Useless stats, watching how badly Teibert played akin to a pylon, slow, terrible defending, no offence, poor marking shows recording minutes for a Canuck player who at best is a reservist is irrelevant
