The CHL should be much bigger given how hockey crazed Canada is (supposed to be). I think it's run terribly; criminally bad. If college basketball and college football in the States can get 30K and 80K respectively, Canadians in even small towns should be able to support their team with 4000-5000K a night, and local sponsors should be easy to find as well.
Windsor has 200K people in it and can't get 6000 out to games? Any city with 100K can't get 5000 people out to watch the best 16-20 yr old hockey players - 30% of which I'd guess go on to play in the NHL - the problem is marketing and the problem is shoddy small town ownership and the problem is the league and it's limited vision of itself.
