What is the structure of dien?

When drawing the structure of dien, where does the metal atom bond? Also, what geometry would [M(dien)2] have?

the metal atom bonds to the three nitrogens in dien as they have lone pairs

it would probably be octahedral

I don't really understand that. Doesn't that make the nitrogens radical? Also what about the charge? How does the structure translate into plus 2 charge?
