question for the Juneau haters

I don't see why everyone wants to dispose of Juneau so quickly. So tell me one thing -- if we did dump him, who would replace him in shutting the opposition's top line down when we needed it?

Begin? -- sure, he was impressive in the few games Juneau was out..but is he really that experienced to fill Juneau's skates? Is he as smart? Does he know to defend as well as Juneau does? Seems to me like he's more of a sparkplug player; an energy line kinda guy. Come playoff time will he get the job done?

Sundstrom? Dackell? -- yeah, they're ok... but they can't do what Juneau does.

As old as he is (which only plays to our benefit due to the experience he's amassed) and as bad as his back is or as slow as he may be.... I'm willing to overlook that and take his mediocre 12 points and penalty killing expertise and run with em.

With the majority of our players either very young or not experienced in playoff hockey, we need guys like him.

I can't think of any instances this season where he's goofed up majorly or done us wrong.

Your opinions?
