Other than their weakness in net I'd put that lineup against any in the Western Conference, much less the Pacific Division. Pheonix has a very good offense(5 legit 20 goal scorers(Doan, Johnson, Nagy, Hull, and Langkow) plus some solid offensive forwards in Ricci, Comrie, and Savage) a solid D core(Morris, Mara, Tanabe, O'Donnell, Hulse, Ference, the two kids PLUS apparently another Veteran D man). If they can get a better starting goalie(and there are a few options out there(Osgood, Potvin, Weekes)) and stay relatively healthy they could probably win the Pacific Division and take a top 4 Seed.
And NO, I'm not a Coyotes Homer, I am an avid Blues fan. I am simply looking at them objectively.
