Canadian content report: April 3rd

The third weekend of MLS action saw both Toronto and Vancouver earn a point by playing to draws at home. That is where the similarities end. Toronto FC stumbled to an uninspiring 1-1 draw with a terrible Chivas team, while Vancouver fell behind 3-0, only to mount a stirring three-goal comeback to tie the game in the dying seconds.

The following Canadian players saw action:

TORONTO: Adrian Cann (90), Nana Attakora (90), Julian de Guzman (45)
Total: 225 of 990 team minutes

Dwayne De Rosario's exit from the Toronto scene will likely hurt Toronto's Canadian numbers for this year. Julian de Guzman's second half appearance was a surprise for most observers who expected his return in a few weeks.

VANCOUVER: Terry Dunfield (90)
Total: 90 of 990 minutes

With Russell Teibert competing with the under 20s in Guatemala, Terry Dunfield was the only one flying his freak flag (the Maple Leaf) for the Whitecaps. No matter the result of Canada's U20 match Tuesday vs Mexico, it seems extremely unlikely that he'll be back for Vancouver's Wednesday clash with New England.

As of April 3rd, the overall Canadian percentages are:
Toronto: 25.0% and Vancouver: 13.8% [details]

Next week's report should also feature data from the NASL openers for Montreal and Edmonton.

I agree with Anonymous. Not enough Canadians playing!

That's got to be one of the top comments ever on this blog, Jeremy!

On a serious note, how many Canadian starters do you expect Montreal to run out on Saturday?
