Being an English Premier League cast-off is no guarantee of success in MLS, but it sure is a good way to get a trial.
That's the case for American midfielder Anton Peterlin, who spent the 2009-10 season with Everton after a couple of distinguished seasons with the Ventura County Fusion stateside.
Peterlin never suited up in meaningful competition for the Toffees, and eventually spent the following two years with Plymouth Argyle and then Walsall in England's lower tiers.
Now he's giving it a go in MLS, apparently in camp with Vancouver:
