Actually that isnt the case......

a player who is a group 2 free agent (section 10.2) who has 3 years of experience and age of signing can elect salary arbitration. the club CANT elect arbitartion. At this point only the player can.

But by the player electing salary arbitration that means he is inelgible for offer sheets. If the club elects arbitration he can still sign offer sheets.

the club can only elect arbitration on a player once while the player can do it multiple times.

As for hodgson elected arbitration....I think he cant if im interpreting it right. He signed when 18-20 thus needing 3 yrs of experience. He only has 2 years. his first year he got called up and played only 8 games thus it may not qualify as a season for this (10 games minimum).
