Juneau was traded to Buffalo late in 1998-99 and scored eleven points in 20 playoff games to help team reach the finals for the first time in 24 years.
He was a solid two-way player for the defensively oriented Ottawa Senators in 1999-00 and helped the club register 95 points in the regular season
. In the off-season he was temporarily selected by the expansion Minnesota Wild then shipped to the Phoenix Coyotes. Prior to the 2001-02 season he returned to his roots and signed with the Montreal Canadiens. Juneau went on to play three seasons in Montreal registering 73 points (19-54-73) before announcing his retirement following Montreal's playoff exit to the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004- Legends of Hockey
Juneau was the beneficiary of some great line mates in Boston, namely Adam Oates and, when healthy, Cam Neely. When the Bruins traded Juneau to Washington in 1993-94, he was never able to duplicate the same lofty scoring totals.
He remained a good playmaker that was a strong presence in back to back Stanley Cup finals,
1998 with Washington and 1999 with Buffalo, despite falling short both times.
Juneau would spend 6 seasons in the U.S. capital. His offensive production would never challenge his previous numbers,
but he earned great acclaim for rounding out his game and becoming a very versatile player. His offense slowly dried up, but he became a key penalty killer and checker. He underwent an interesting transformation from scoring star to a jack-of-all-trades utility player noted for his work ethic and strong defensive play.
While his scoring totals diminished, his hockey sense remained as strong as always. It was just used in different fashion and, to his credit, he never complained about his role.- Joe Pelletier
Joey is the type of player that makes everybody on the ice better
, not only because he can score goals, but because of his great playmaking ability.- Jim Schoenfeld, Capitals Coach
When he came to Montreal he wasn't the Joe Juneau who had scored all those points. A good solid hockey player and I think he was a very honest hockey player. He earned his money. He gaves his employer, from what I could see in the game he played in Montreal, good value for the dollar."- Dick Irvin
Juneau was drafted by the Boston Bruins in 1988 and wound up playing for Washington, Buffalo, Ottawa, Phoenix, and Montreal before retiring in 2004.
He was generally regarded as a good, solid-two-way player
.- By The Numbers
Joe is an outstanding player with
the speed, smarts, and competitive drive to make it big in the NHL

Juneau is a crafty, offensively creative player who added spark to the Bruins after coming aboard after the Olympics...He's an
elusive player with a knack for making the big play

Excellent speed, soft hands, and GREAT vision...Back of 92/93 Upper Deck Card
One of the game's most gifted lateral skaters, Juneau is a magician while patrolling offensive circles.- back of 94/95 Fleer Franchise Future Cards
Few players can match joe Juneau for pure passing ability. His stick moves leave opposing defensemen wondering what hit them.- Back of 94/95 Fire On Ice Card
The Toronto St. Pats are pleased to select a versatile, two-way player who can play both centre and left wing...
