So all the US teams now take in an extra 12 mil and have to pay 7mil because of the increased salary cap. Not entirely sure how 5mil per year is going to stabilize everything.

Note:Rounded all my numbers but everything is pretty close.
You forgot to subtract the $190M that was already there from the previous deals... Which is probably what Keller did to. Which is why this is overblown.

It's an extra $3M/year, (Give or take) which isn't going to save a team like Phoenix from hitting their $50M trigger that opens up potential for relocation.
