Veteran forward Thomas Vanek is weighing his options as he continues to wait for the Detroit Red Wings, according to the Star Tribune’s Michael Russo.

“I’ve got to make up my mind sooner than later” Vanek, an unrestricted free agent said.

“This is something I’ve never been through,” Vanek said. “Usually I went early, so this is different. After the first week, I knew this would drag.”

“I’ve had a good summer. I’ve prepared myself like I’m going to play, which most likely I am” Vanek commented.

Vanke started last season with Detroit before being traded to the Florida Panthers.

According to his agent, Stephen Bartlett, the Vancouver Canucks are interested.
