Very excited about this...

Only thing is, I am hoping he doesn't try to do TOO much.
I really don't think he needs to come in and be some sort of 'savior' for this team...just play his rugged style, be smart about things, and be responsible with the puck and everything will be fine.

This is going to be a huge test for him as he will now be playing with the big boys (literally) and stuff that may have worked for him in the AHL may or may not work for him in the NHL.
He will probably have the jitters (normal for a guy his age showing off his skills on the big stage), so I will give him a few games to get completely settled.

One thing is for sure:
The Lightning need a player with his style BADLY.
The team plays FAR too 'soft', they SCARE NO ONE at the moment...and that is despite having the offensive talent they do.

Maybe watching 22 yr old Gudas take the body will remind guys like Eric Brewer and Keith Aulie that they are supposed to be rugged shut down D-men themselves.

Good luck Radko...will be watching with much anticipation!
