You might check this out for info on arbitration.

It's not everything, but it's some of the stuff. It doesn't talk about not being to negotiate with other teams, but there's no doubt in my mind that's correct. Search any of the articles about NJ taking Parise to arbitration or Nashville and Weber. The team elected arbitration to prevent offer sheets. TB and LA don't have that luxury because Doughty and Stamkos haven't played long enough. The same thing could be an issue for Dallas next season with Benn. He's not arbitration eligible, and he could sign an offer sheet with any team if not signed before free agency.
