Some questionable signings/trades and or drafting with respect to forwards (eg., Preds cap hit for their forwards last season actually was higher than the Canucks [and it's not like the any Canuck forward has a 'retirement contract' to effectively reduce the cap hit]).

For a team that operates under a lower internal cap - that is a difficult obstacle to overcome.

It does show though how much better a job the club has done with respect to the other half of the game (preventing goals) with a limited budget - and of course great coaching.
