As the buzzer sounded at the end of Game 7 of the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals, the Pittsburgh Penguins were crowned champions, and more than a few Red Wings stepped off the ice at the Joe Louis Arena for the (presumably) last time.

Marian Hossa, Tomas Kopecky, Ty Conklin, Jiri Hudler, and Mikael Samuelsson have all left Detroit for other teams this off-season.

Okay, it's actually still anyone's guess what's happening with Huds, but as the 2008-2009 season ended, the most frequent question that arose was:

Who's stepping in?

This article is here to answer that very question for you hockey fans who don't follow what happens in Detroit .

As any Red Wings fan worth their salt knows, this organization takes great pride in developing their talent from within and only unleashes them on the NHL when they are good and ready.

And believe me when I say that this new batch of future stars is ready.

After outstanding performances in the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the hockey world was put on notice that a new crop of Red Wings are ready to step into the Hockeytown spotlight and help lead Detroit into yet another promising season.

So, without further adieu, I present to you...The Black Aces.
