Nah. Although I would love to see that just like most fans, it won't happen. Coaches tend to rely on experience and veterans. Julien is no exception. And he seems pretty high on Juneau. The guy will need to end up paralized (which could happen soon seeing how his back seems to hurt) before Julien considers taking him out of the 3rd line center job, and even more if this means he'll be replaced by an inexperienced rookie. Julien wants to make the playoffs. He's not there to develop kids. That's Jarvis' job. As long as he feels experience will lead him there before talent (see Juneau over any other center, Bouillon over Hainsey, Quintal over Komisarek, etc.), it's likely our young guns will have to be patient and wait for their turns (which should be next year).
