Granted, it's gonna be a dogfight for the last playoff-spot, but I've seen them ranked in the Playoffs only once and often As low as 13 and 14.
Columbus and St. Louis have made efforts to improve as well as having blue chip prospects ready to make the team. Minnesota has made significant changes as well but it's too early to tell if they'll be better. Edmonton lacks in defense, but they are improving in offense as their young guns mature.
Calgary is more or less hoping that they can run at the same pace for the entirety of next season for what they did in the last 3 months of last year to be anywhere near contention. But they ran out of gas in that short span, so I don't see how likely that will be.
