"I have some coaches who are upset with me because, as much as they’re excited about Marc Denis, they didn’t want to lose Fred Modin," Feaster said. "Doug MacLean and his people did their homework. They knew who they wanted. We have no reason to believe that Fred Modin won’t go ahead and have another 30-goal season and be the excellent twoway player he has always been. "We’ve always said that if he played in Canada or a major market, he’d be a finalist for the Selke Trophy every year. Calling him (and telling him about the trade) was one of the most difficult phone calls I’ve ever had to make. He’s an outstanding hockey player and an outstanding human being." "It takes awhile for the news (of the trade) to sink in," Modin said from his home in Sweden. "I had a great time in Tampa, but I’m not going to be there anymore — and I’m very excited about a new opportunity in Columbus. I’m openminded about it, and hopefully we’ll make the best of it. It’s going to be fun. It’s a new place to play, the people I’ve talked to speak highly of the organization and I hope to fit right in."more
