I still don't see why you can't compare those contracts. When the team and agent talk, all of those will be fair game when both sides try to set value.

In Benn's case, the threat of arbitration is pretty meaningless. He'd win a one year deal and still be a restricted free agent the next season. Unless the two sides are miles apart, I doubt arbitration will be a factor in this at all. I presume they both want a long-term, big-money deal, which arbitration does not provide.
