VCup Canadian Content

This is really a partner to yesterday's long-winded post on the Voyageurs Cup. And if you couldn't get through that one, don't despair: according to a recent article in The Atlantic, the interweb is destroying memory and the ability to focus on reading more than a paragraph or three at once.

This one is shorter: a quick glance at the on-field Canadian content from the 4 matches played so far:

* The number of Canadian minutes as a percentage of total minutes played for Montreal in the first game could actually be a tick higher, because as a team, they had fewer 'player-minutes' in total. Stefano Pesoli earned the tournament's only red card to date, so the total number of minutes played by all Impact players that night was fewer than the normal 990. I chose, however, to use the percentage to indicate the portion of the maximum possible number of minutes on the field that were awarded to Canadian players.
