WINNIPEG - Nearly three weeks into free agency, things are eerily quiet for the Winnipeg Jets.

While other teams in the Western Conference — and specifically in the Central Division — continue to add veteran forwards like the Nashville Predators did with Mike Ribeiro and Derek Roy, the Jets have done very little since inking centre Mathieu Perreault to a three-year deal.

Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff, who generally keeps his cards close to the vest, went on record July 1 by saying he’d like to add another forward and reiterated that position at the end of development camp.

To that end, the Jets have looked at bringing in right-winger Lee Stempniak, who finished last season occasionally riding shotgun for Sidney Crosby and scored 28 goals during the 2009-10 season and added 19 in 2010-11.

Other unrestricted free agents that could fit the bill on a short-term deal include David Booth and Daniel Winnick.
