Juneau is medically cleared to play, but CJ has no reason to break up the current lineup. Oh, and Audette has been ok'd by Doc, but he's in the same boat as M. Juneau.

Juneau is not done for the year, but this will surely be his last season with the Habs.

True... his back is near its playing end. He'll likely share time with Dags though.

Juneau is old and banged up. He's not fit anymore for a shutdown center role on a third line facing the opposition's best players.

That being said I still believe that Juneau could be useful with REDUCED ice time and responsabilities. Less ice time and defensive responsabilities could help him be more effective in the opposition end. I'd like him to center the 4th line with Kilger and Langdon on his wings. When Ward is back I'd sit Langdon.

I'd not touch the Bégin line since it frees up Bulis to play on the top two lines. Ideally Bulis would be better suited for a checking role on a contending team but considering the lack of talented offensive players on our top two lines I like seeing Bulis there.

Hey Habso. I've been saying the same thing for a while. Juneau was a 4th line center before coming with us and 3 years later he isn't better then he was when he played limited time. Its obvious this is his last year, in fact I don't think any of our UFAs will be back.

Bégin is the heart and soul of the Habs right now, and for a long time I guess. There is another player who is the heart and soul of the team, can't remember his name. ... Who's playing that jazz on the radio?, humm, so sweeet, John Coltrane is a master with his Sax.

Well put...I also think Juneau, at this point in his career, is suited for the 4th line. I also can't wait for Ward to come back. Having a 4th line of Kilger-Juneau-Ward wouldn't be that bad, they can play a checking role and would be able to chip some goals.
