Vanek is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after the season. He turned down a contract extension from the Islanders last month because he appears intent on testing his market value when the free-agent signing period opens July 1.
"Right now my mind is just racing a little bit," Vanek told TSN. "... This is pretty fresh to me, but never say never."
The Islanders acquired Vanek in late October in a trade that sent Matt Moulson, a conditional first-round draft pick and a 2015 second-round draft pick to the Buffalo Sabres. Moulson reportedly was traded to the Minnesota Wild around the same time the news broke on Vanek's trade to the Canadiens.
"I played a lot there with Buffalo; it's electric city, great fans, great building, so I'm excited to join them," Vanek said of Montreal.

The New York Rangers have landed one of the best players available on NHL Trade Deadline day, acquiring captain Martin St. Louis from the Tampa Bay Lightning for their captain, Ryan Callahan, a first-round pick and a conditional second-round choice.
The first-round pick is in the 2015 NHL Draft and the conditional second-round selection is in 2014. The second-round pick becomes a first-rounder if the Rangers reach the Eastern Conference Final this season. Also, if Callahan signs a new contract with the Lightning, the Rangers would receive Tampa Bay's second-round pick in 2015 in exchange for New York's seventh-round choice in 2015.
St. Louis, the 2004 Hart Trophy winner and 2013 Art Ross Trophy winner, is currently tied for eighth in the League with 61 points (29 goals). The 38-year-old forward has 973 points in 1,041 career games, and four 90-point seasons on his resume.
