Modin can play both wings. He played RW for a period last year & did so in the playoffs as well.
If (and that's a 6'4" IF) he stays healthy, you've got a nice 3rd/4th liner.

Yeah, free. There's a reason, though:

He played well for us when he wasn't on IR.
The problem is, he spent most of his time after 06-07 with us in the press box. Dressed for 97 out of a possible 246 games. Last season, he got hurt on his first shift of the SEASON, which was against Detroit in November or December.
Awesome slapshot. Not only hard, but accurate. Excellent size and does a good job infront of the net on the powerplay. Don't think he played the point very much so don't know if he'd do a better job there. Good peneltykiller aswell.
Players that played with him on Tre Kronor says he's a great guy and leader. Both on and off the ice.
I see him fit the Kings perfectly and if he gets more than 5 minutes of icetime per game he'll probobly show some numbers too.
