Jackets got best of deal with Modin, signs a new contract with Columbus.

TSN, as always on top of things, is reporting this.

Modin was traded to Columbus in the off-season by the Lightning in exchange for goaltender Marc Denis and, boy, the Jackets don't regret making this deal.

Denis was highly touted by Tampa Bay and they thought their goalie woes were resolved (see John Grahame).

Wrongo, while Denis is maintaining a save percentage around .880 in Tampa and a GAA of 3.20, his counterpart, Modin, is having a good season in Columbus and proved he "still has it" after he was questioned for his poor season in Tampa Bay the year before.

This is not a surprising move, since the signing has been rumoured for the past two weeks. And with that, ladies and gents, Fredrik Modin is off the market.
