Phil Kessel was constantly criticized during his time with the Toronto Maple Leafs for his conditioning. Despite the fact he was consistently one of the best scorers in the NHL, Maple Leafs fans thought Kessel could afford to drop a few pounds. All of this scrutiny eventually led to Kessel parting ways with the Leafs and now he’s starting a new chapter with the Pittsburgh Penguins. That new start has also resulted in Kessel shedding some weight. Penguins are happy with Phil Kessel. Worked with @GaryRobertsHPT this summer. Lost 13 lbs. — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) September 4, 2015 Dropping that much weight is pretty significant for a player like Kessel. He’s officially listed at 202 pounds on NHL.com and his recent weight loss should put him right around 190. At that weight, Kessel should still have his strength, but he might be a bit more agile on his skates. The post Phil Kessel has shed 13 pounds this summer appeared first on Puck Drunk Love.

When it was revealed that Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle were selling the Pittsburgh Penguins – moments before Gary Bettman gave his State of the NHL speech at the Stanley Cup Final, no less – the speculation began about how much this glamour franchise could bring in.  The initial projections had the price somewhere between $700 million and $850 million, which is crazier than trading Simon Despres for Ben Lovejoy. Rick Westhead of TSN, however, has zeroed in on what might be the actual asking price for the Penguins: The owners of the Pittsburgh Penguins are asking $750 million (U.S.) for the team, but face long odds of finding a buyer who’s willing to pay that much because of the flagging North American economy and uncertainty over the future of the Canadian dollar, sports investment bankers say. A $750-million transaction price would mark a record for a U.S.-based NHL team, said Drew Dorweiler, a Montreal economist who has been hired by the owners of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks, Manchester United and other sports teams to estimate their franchise values. Keep in mind that the Penguins partnered with the city on Consol Energy Center, but that the sale of the franchise will include the development rights to the area around the former site of the Civic Arena, across from Consol. Westhead reports that his financial sources wonder if the Penguins can find a buyer, given how the NHL’s overall fiscal stability might be challenged by the lack of stability for the Canadian dollar. Bill Daly of the NHL denied that: "Canadian dollar would not play into a transaction like this at all.” MORE FROM YAHOO HOCKEY
