Arbitration and expired CBAs

In Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts he mentions Dallas might be worried about Jeff Skinner's contract with Carolina signed prior to the expiry of the previous CBA should Jamie Benn make it to arbitration.

It seems to me that contracts signed under a previous CBA should not be comparable to ones seeking to be established under a new CBA but, from the sound of it, they are.

On what pretense is this allowed? Is purely for logistical reasons: if it was not allowed it's possible arbitration could have no comparables to base itself on which could be a problem I guess; still I am curious.

Thanks
