Could the Wild Make It to the Playoffs?

With the NHL being a little over 3 months into the 2020-21 season (more like 2021), many fans are most likely beginning to wonder if their team is going to make it to the playoffs. Well, here is my prediction for the Minnesota Wild.
I think with the addition of Kirill Kaprizov, the Wild have a legit chance at making the playoffs. Now add in the likes of goalie Kaapo Kahkonen, and we have a much better chance.
Kaprizov leads the Wild in points and is at the top of the league for all rookies with 31 points. 
Kaapo Kahkonen, rookie goalie for the Wild has showed his worth in the last few years. Leading the Iowa Wild to the playoffs for the last 2 years. In 2019, Kahkonen led the Iowa Wild to the 3rd round where they eventually lost to the Charlotte Checkers, and in 2020 they were at the top of their division and for most of the season, at the top the league. 
In conclusion, the Wild rookies have given the team a competitive advantage against other teams.
