    What an amazing day for Penguins fans/Droid owners! :icon_ banana:

    I checked my Twitter just now and noticed a Tweet from the Penguins telling me that they have recently released an app for the Droid called "Pittsburgh Penguins Mobile". Basically this application gives you news stories, stats, standings, scores, videoslive updates (also has access to Penguins' Tweets within the program)...and best yet (well not for me since I don't live in Pittsburgh anymore due to being active duty Army) it allows you to watch replays when you are in the Arena!!!

    Even if you are missing out on that amazing feature, this is still a great app. Talking with your friends and want to let them know some key Penguins stats or NHL standings? No problem. Want to see some video that was played on the Jumbotron recently? No problem.

    The only thing I think it's missing is a link to the live radio like they have on their website. But have no fear, you can get that feed from iheartradio for free since 105.9 the X is a Clearchannel station!

    I downloaded and installed this. Then when I was on the phone, this app started up and blindsided me in the head. Now I have a concussion and I can't play hockey again this season.

    Just for the record, it's not against the rules (yet) to hit someone in the head. He didn't charge, he didn't elbow, he just hit him. People get injured, especially when they aren't aware of their surroundings.

    The Ulf hit on Neely was pretty nasty though.

    Long line, as in the two you've mentioned out of their 43 year history?

    It will be illegal shortly. The NHL is speeding this rule change through because of this. Cooke has a long history of cheap shots to the head like this. The local news showed like 4 shots that are pretty much EXACTLY the same kind of hit he got Savard with. Even if it's legal, doesn't change the fact that it was a lame, cheap, blind shot to the head.

    You could show almost a clip a night of people getting people in the head in the NHL. Until it's illegal, it's a perfectly legit hit. If it was Chara injuring Cooke you wouldn't complain one bit.

    So the history should matter? So if I am convicted of speeding in my car, the next time I am not speeding but get pulled over I should get convicted of a DUI based on my history, not the current hit? The only time history should come into play is when factoring the length of a suspension. History should have ZERO bearing on CONVICTION, only PUNISHMENT if convicted.

    Cooke didn't do anything illegal. I thought he was going to be suspended, and I would have been ok with that except the NHL needs to be consistent. A) he did nothing illegal, and B) Richards did the same exact thing and got no suspension, so the NHL needs to be consistent.

    And Guerin said they should ban hits to the head. Notice they haven't banned it yet. The focus of the article was the Guerin felt that those types of hits should be suspension worthy, which they should be. But they aren't - yet.

    And you make it sound like the Bruins' entire season was ruined by this hit and the Penguins are the villains because one person on his own hit one of your players. The Bruins suck, which is why they are battling to keep that 8th spot. Savard would be golfing after the first round anyhow...so he can rest up and come back next year and maybe you guys can give it another go around.

    It wasn't like Bylsma told Cooke to go hit the guy in the head. It's not like Cooke purposely tried to injure the guy. Was it an irresponsible hit? Yes, I agree it was...but it was legal, and I'm sure his intent was to flatten Savard, but certainly not injure him. And you still have named two players in 43 years that are "cheap shot artists" and one of them didn't even play most of his career in Pittsburgh. Hell both of them haven't really.

    BTW got the app installed and can't wait to try out the video's when I'm at the game this weekend. CMU has had their YinsCam setup in the arena but it would not work on a Droid last few times I tried. Hopefully now it will. :)

    How about this hit where Boychuck leaves his feet? Does that mean that Boychuck makes the Bruins a long line of dirty players?




    Here's another shoulder to the head (clean hit, but same thing, shoulder to the head):



    How about this hit?



    How about this cross check to the head?





    So does that mean the Bruins are a long line of dirty players? Of course not. Don't be a homer, you look silly.

    Cool, was wondering when this was coming to android. Thanks for the heads up.

    The app has a link to let you sign up for the Matt Cooke Fan Club direct!

    Actually, as a lifelong PENS fan, I can't and won't defend that hit. Regardless of whether there was a rule in place or not, there are hits you just don't take. And that was one of them. Hopefully, Savard makes it back quicker than it looks now. And more importanly, hopefully he has no lingering effects and gets back to leading a normal life now.

    I agree, but it was still a legal hit. I was at that game and I even tweeted (you can go back and look if you don't believe me) "Cooke will be suspended for that hit" as soon as it happened.

    That being said, that one hit doesn't make the Penguins a dirty organization.

    Agreed, it doesn't make them a dirty organization. But Cooke is a dirty player. The NHL would be much better without his kind in the league. And before this becomes PENS bashing (oops... too late) EVERY TEAM has these types.

    The NHL tied their hands from being able to suspend Cooke when Richards wasn't suspended for basically the same infraction. I think there is a rule that could have been applied, something about hitting an unexpecting player. I don't know exactly what the rule or wording is, but there was a lot of discussion about it on talk radio here in the Burgh. Regardless, since Richards wasn't disciplined, neither was Cooke.

    I'd like to see the new rule regarding head shots get on the books this year, today rather than later. All this talk about needing to go through proper channels is bull. When Avery waved his stick in front of Brodeur, Bettman made of his few right decisions and clarified that an existing rule would be used. He could easily do the same here.

    Well there is an intent to injure infraction, but I really don't think Cooke was trying to injure. I think even "dirty" players don't intend to injure...unless you're talking about whacking someone in the face with a stick.

    Well the NHLPA is finally considering a "band-aid" fix for this problem, albeit a little too late since this season I think. The hits we've seen this year (Mike Richards Hit On David Booth & Matt Cooke on Marc Savard for example) were some pretty terrible hits, ones that maybe should have at least been assessed a Roughing minor I think.

    These open ice hits IMO are just as bad as the dangerous boarding calls (Such as Ovechkin on Campbell) that we've seen this year as well. Hell, Marc Savard is out with a "Grade 2 concussion" after the hit he took. The difference here is players like Richards and Cooke get off scott free with no penalty or suspension, but Ovechkin gets a 5 Minute Major penalty, a game misconduct AND a 2 game suspension. Don't get me wrong, the hit on Campbell was painful to watch, but to me it's almost on the same scale as these dangerous hits to the head in open ice.

    I can't wait till they institute some sort of enforcement about these hits. If I was a Bruins fan I'd be pretty upset because they are a team struggling to make it into the playoffs, and now they are without maybe their best PP player.

    Like that Chris Simon slash on Ryan Hollweg?



    This is a pretty sweet application, but unfortunately being a Devils fan, it only makes me wish that they would come out with something similar, haha. Maybe all the teams will take note of this and create applications for their fans to use at games as well. The ability to watch replays alone makes this application very useful.

    P.S - The Pens better lose tonight because we need that Atlantic Division lead back :p Go Devils!

    The difference was, the Ovie hit was an actual penalty. The Richards and Cooke hits were not.

    Well, why shouldn't it have been a roughing penalty maybe? Yeah Savard literally just took the shot, but to me it's pretty clear that Cooke was not going for the body on that hit otherwise he would have done it. I just wonder if it was someone like Sidney Crosby taking that hit instead of Marc Savard if the results would have been the same.

    Cooke has a history of being this kind of player, just look back to earlier this season when he actually did get suspended for two games for on a hit on Artem Anisimov that looks almost exactly the same.



    Okay I'm done, I don't want this thread to get closed because this application is still really awesome. I'm just excited to see NHL fans and am really happy that the Penguins are taking a step like this to benefit some of the more tech-savy fans. Just think about it, you could watch ALL of these bone crunching hits again and again while you're at the game :D

    I'll have to see if there is any way to contact the Devils and request a similar application. I would totally use it every time I'm at the Prudential Center.
