08:20 AM ET 11.13 | An obvious sense of frustration has set in with Sidney Crosby. As he has all along, Crosby feels as if the NHLPA is more willing to give and negotiate than the owners. In talks Sunday, the NHL apparently did not budge on its demands for several altered, owner-friendly player contract rights. And that's on top of the major core economic issues. ... On the flavor of the talks: It's pretty one-sided. I don't really know what (the owners) have given up to this point. They're trying to take away all the contracting rights. The question I'd ask is why would we change that? I think we all think it's the most competitive league in the world so why would you go and change that -- the way contracts go and the way teams can operate?
