Personally speaking I can't see the Islanders improving. They have been a lottery team since 2008 always selecting in the top 5 of the Draft. The only time they didn't was 2008 when they traded the 5th pick to Toronto.

Minnesota & Columbus are in the Western Conference so they won't effect Toronto chances of making it in the Eastern Conference.

Tampa Bay, Montreal & Winnipeg could be better and why couldn't they make it if a different teams from the Eastern Conference misses the Playoffs. So why does it always have to be Toronto who misses out? I have seen others predict New Jersey, Washington, Florida & Ottawa to miss and they were Playoff teams in 2012.
