They have the highest operating expenses of every team in the bottom 10 of revenues aside from Columbus (who decided to spend to the cap).
For a really good team, Phoenix is the lowest ranking playoff team. Unless you count the value of the team, then the Blues is at the bottom. But to be a fairly good team that could potentially win the cup, the numbers does tell a story about the market. And to be honest, Carolina sells out more games than Phoenix, if you check the Forbes NHL fan ranking, you would know why Phoenix is losing that much, even though they have the potential like Nashville is having.
