In most cases, a player will agree to a contract with the team before the process even begins. Regardless, they can only negotiate with their current team.

But what percent of those players actually signs a new deal with their team and doesn't change teams? And are those who can search a new deal somewhere else players like Dubinsky or more like Jannik Hansen(no offence)?
