I would be quite happy with 5 for UFA years. Very happy, in fact.
Stepan's last arbitration year (which is the one included in Gagner's deal) will most likely cost more than his 1st or 2nd arbitration years. If Gorton is offering him a 3 year deal, it really isn't comparable at all.

If the Rangers are offering a 6 year deal, then yeah, they can compare the last 3 years of the deal to Gagner's deal. But at this point, I seriously doubt a 6 year deal is on the table.
