I don’t see it as payback at all.  There are no more Canadian teams in the league and now there is the CPL, Canadians should be considered international players.  The same way Americans in the CPL sho

The league has nothing to gain business-wise doing this. You can be sure that the 3 MLS teams would use this precedent to apply pressure to get their reserve squads in the league cementing the "2nd ra

Telfer is still with TFC?

Not sure, just thought I'd include him as today there were rumours he is going to York 9 to reunite with his old coach.  Maybe it's a loan.  Maybe he's the one being sent to the Fury.  He was at TFCs training camp but not in the 18 for the CCL games or season opener, odd they'd play 2 total rookies in Schaffelburg and Dorsey over Telfer in the CCL given his decent play last year.

I don't think it'd be Telfer if the clue is that he had been coached by Jim Brennan, as he came to TFC II way after Brennan had left. That said, if we mean Carmine, he was at York U - so that'd fit.

That said, Aiden Daniels fits the profile a little more. Seeing as he's listed out on loan at mlssoccer.com (despite there being no announcements). I believ ehe was also around when Brennan was coaching in the academy.

Still without a club:

Mike Petrasso
David Edgar
Mo Babouli
D. Choiniere
Richie Laryea
Christian Gutierrez
Ryan Telfer
Robert Stillo
Callum Irving
Beyland-Goyette
Emile Legault
Tomer Chencinski
Iain Hume

I don’t mean to nitpick, but the guy’s name is Louis Béland-Goyette. Anyone heard anything lately about him?

I've been kind of thinking about the potential Laval CPL team possibly coming in year 2, and thinking that it would make sense for the likes of LBG to hold out on any long-term commitments. obviously a French contingent would be expected and I can think of a few guys who it would make a lot of sense for next year.

 

In addition to LBG having no contract:

Wandrille Lefevre is with AS Blainville this season because he has gotten his CPA and become an accountant in Quebec. He might not want to move anywhere, but a Canadian CPL team might be of interest to him.

If Ottawa continues this implosion, it may leave Maxim Tissot and Jeremy Gagnon-Lapare looking for new clubs, and they've spent a good amount of time in Montreal already.

Karl Ouimette has been bouncing around USL so long on one year contracts, Quebec might be able to provide him more stability. 

If the league quality is any good and Remi Garde continues to use Jackson-Hamel so sparsely, there might be an off chance of him coming to the CPL. Regardless I'd expect him to be moving on from the Impact after this year. 

 

The stability of the league, the professional image and a decent product on the pitch/on game day could really turn a second year franchise like Laval into a real success out of the gates.

A name I haven't heard is Amer Didic. He hasn't been able to get an MLS-minute at Sporting KC, but still has 3 years or professional experience in USL and was considered one of the better Centre Backs of the league. 

Amer Didic is with San Antonio FC I believe

Looking at the quality of their imports for this season plus Attakora, Haworth, Monsalve, Dixon, implosion seems a bit strong.

I think I more so meant the hesitation from Canadian players. Although I can admit that Choiniere's agent probably had more to do with his decision

Colo Colo has officially confirmed that Cristian is now back with the club following the termination of the loan deal with Huachipato. The injury of the newly signed left back Ronald de la Fuente ( he will be out for 8 weeks) led Coach Mario Salas to find an emergency replacement.  Information from Chile is that his agent was talking to Valour FC but there was also discussions with Toronto FC

Looks like David Edgar is signing for Hartlepool United in England's fifth tier:

https://www.hartlepoolmail.co.uk/sport/football/hartlepool-united/hartlepool-united-expect-to-complete-another-signing-today-1-9635360

That's a fully pro club that typically draws in the 3,000 to 4,000 range, who until relatively recently were in the Football League, so he can probably still make more money at that level than in CanPL, if $CAN 35k is the norm for starters as has been alleged.

Was it a loan deal at Huachipato? Spanish language wikipedia suggests otherwise and that he was probably out of contract:
