Week 24 came and went with some of the big market teams making serious statements that the run to MLS Cup should go through them.  LA moves into the top spot of this week's Power Rankings as arguably the hottest team in MLS right now.  Another team who can stake claim to the Hottest Team label is the Red Bulls, who absolutely destroyed Toronto to win their 7th game in their last 9.  Our Black & Red, who fell last week to NYCFC, falls out of the top spot to #3 this week.

Where do you see United this week? Who do you think is the hottest team in the league right now?  The comments below are open for your entertainment...use them!
