Radulov's Temper

Wings fan coming in peace here, but I just wanted to know how Preds fans feel about Rad's temper? Specifically that outburst in Game 2.

Was that uncharacteristic of him, and just a one time, "in the moment" kind of thing? Or is his temper something you guys are legitimetly concerned about? Wings fans seem to think that giving him a few whakcs here and there should be enough to get him to self destruct, I don't know if this is entirely true but I mean from what I've seen of him, discipline and self control don't exactly seem to be his forte?

Do Preds management sit him down and tell him to get it under control or do they like seeing the emotion he shows?

Like to hear your thoughts

Everyone is different. He is a guy who shows his feelings. I like it and am not worried about it. It is nice to see a guy who actually cares and hates to lose.

He's emotional. He's fiercely competitive and wants to win. There's a fine line between passion that's good to see, and being unprofessional. But I like it. He won't self-destruct from shots from the Wings. He doesn't get mad at opposing players really...he more gets mad at himself, frustrated when he can't score.

I do too - it's nice to see it in our forwards corps, and it sort of breaks the euro-sterotype.

Radulov just has a high intensity level. I love it.

Maybe we praised him too soon. I'd like him to turn up the intensity in this game.

I bet the playoff games he's been used to playing in are way different than what he's facing now. Here's hoping he can adjust and turn it on beast mode instead of getting discouraged.

that outburst over the offsides call was stupid and he was a few seconds away from getting a penalty until leggy dragged him to the bench.

he skated around the puck like he knew it was offsides but then played it??

love intensity but it has to be over the right stuff and that call was not one of them.

Think I know the play you're talking about. Clearly an offsides in Game 2 and Rads went chirping to the ref pretty hard. Watched it live at the Bridge; he was wrong and the ref made the right call.

I think it was just frustration and not his typical behavior towrds refs.
I do like his intensity though.

Overall, Radulov has been a disappointment to me. It doesn't really have much to do with his temper though. I've only seen 1 outburst from him and it didn't really bother me. I like his intensity, when he brings it.

But as a player, you don't get instant replay. He was SURE he was onside and argued it vehemently. No fault there.

I love his emotion. I hope it rubs off on our whole squad. He wants to win SO bad and wants to be a big part of it.

He hasn't scored yet, but he's been much better than NBC gave him credit for. He's been creating chances, getting some assists and had some point-blank chances that Howard was extremely lucky to stop. He also has to be accounted for at all times, giving others more space.

Radulov has been playing well and hustles arguably harder than anyone else. He brings attention to himself which gets others open, he had a great pass on Webers goal to AK and had a huge shift late in the 3rd when we were getting controlled.

He doesnt have the goals yet but hes been doing what he needs to and has been effective.

I think the main problem I as a fan had with that offsides call is that whether Radulov felt he was onside or not, the linesman clearly had his arm up to call an offsides and Radulov knew that. So he skated around the puck as if he wasn't going to play it, but then he just couldn't help himself. The whole thing was kinda immature and dumb in my opinion, especially since it was ruled an intentional offsides.

I figured he was mad about it being call intentional. It seemed that he thought it was offside but if the ref didn't vocalize that fact and he played the puck it shouldn't be intentional.

That's what I took it as. it seemed like he was more pissed at something the ref didn't make clear on that play, and the intentional must've been it. It wasn't smart, but I think there's a reason the ref didn't give him a penalty after that much abuse...he had some sort of case for it.
