You fix them by having a consistent winner, and hiring good business/hockey people who can sell the experience and woo sponsors...

and for a couple of years the NHL did let nashville have as many saturday home games as possible, so they may do it for Phoenix as well
Not nearly the same. Phoenix got a playoff team from the beginning. Nashville had to wait several years before making the playoffs.

Canadian teams bad considering Canadian teams don't see 100% of that 100 million since it is shared amongst the American teams, I wonder if any of that NBC contract comes up north, I doubt it.
All the money is pooled and divided among the teams since the NHL is technically a non profit organization. All profits from the league as a whole, tv contracts, merchandising, etc. gets shipped back to the teams after reduction for expenses.

*EDIT* I've heard this song before, love it. Another fave one from "Echoes - Best of Pink Floyd" Shine On You Crazy Diamond.
You should have seen them in concert on the Animals tour when they blew up (exploded) a pig balloon blimp like thing.
