Eh, maybe. Not if they don't get some new blood on the roster. They are a playoff team right now without any new moves, but they wouldn't be a contender.

They'll have to upgrade the offense and defense. Wings fans are banking on Suter and Semin to fill those holes, along with defensive prospect Smith and forward Nyquist to take big steps. If all of those things happen, then they'll look great. But it's also possible none of those happen, which would leave the roster looking stale, slow, and basically like a lesser version of the same team that's burned out the last 3 playoffs.
