The 2016-17 season for Thomas Vanek was really well. He led the Wings in points for a little while and was a stud all season before being dealt to the Florida Panthers for a 3rd round pick.
Vanek, coming off a 48 point season is still a free agent after two weeks of free agent opening. Vanek , as seen last season can produce as he had 15 goals and 23 assists in 48 games played for the wings. During his time with the Panthers , Thomas had 10 points in 20 games.
Thomas Vanek wanted to come back this offseason and loved Detroit ! Now as we are in the off season there is a problem. Our cap. The wings are cap tight and now having to sign Tatar and Athaniseiou the wings will be impossible to get him unless we trade to free up cap.
All of us Wings fans want to see 62 back ok the ice. But will Ken Holland do something with our cap problem ? We will see here in the waiting weeks.
