With all due respect to Juneau, I think this will be a good thing for the habs....they need someone with more size, speed, grit and a younger guy to fill his role on the checking line. And Juneau was making about 1.8 mil per season as well which might have been a bit more than he should have got.

He did a good job for us in 2002. The last two years he was kinda just hanging on. A good guy to have in the room though. Hopefully they will keep him in the organization, eh?

Thanks for letting me know the exact figure. All the better once he retires after making so much for his contributions (which dont really measure up to his salary for this season).

what's the word on Quintal?

I heard he was pretty sad that he didn't play as it as his final game or something.

Word is that Quintal will retire soon, no way do i see the habs brining him back on d. That is another 2.5 mil that can be better spent in addition to the 2 mil that Juneau got this season.

Based on Quintal being sad that he didn't play in the last game, well I think it was the right move even if Quintal was healed to play. With the way Komisarek has played in the playoffs since Quintal went down, Komo is clearly the better d-man right now. Good move by Julien even if Quintal actually was healthy enough to play...Komo deserves his spot on the roster now and has worked hard to get it.

Bottom line is we could say that Julien could have done things differently, but Quintal would not have been a difference maker anyways. Langdon got a huge goal in the playoffs and Sunny unfortunately did not get the puck out in game 3 on Vinny's game tier, but scored in a losing cause in the final game for us this season. To be honest I dont think I will miss Quintal all that much next season if there is hockey......sure he brought grit and experience but he is also old and slow.

He played beyond my expectations for him this post-season, he really stepped it up and was surprisingly a physical presence. I'll miss Joey Juneau, because he has a cool sounding name that wont be heard much anymore.

Joe, I appreciated you throwing your body around in the playoffs like you were a 6-4, 250 monster, but it's time for you to hang 'em up.

He's an Aeronautical Engineer, got his degree at RPI while playing hockey (the more amazing thing is he didn't speak a word of English before he left for school).

I wish him well and wouldn't be surprised to see him return to hockey as a coach some day.

he's retiring


heres what was on the rds.ca website

L'attaquant à du Canadien de Montréal Joé Juneau a annoncé sa retraite. Il a confirmé le tout au journal Le Soleil de Québec.
Il se retire après avoir marqué 156 buts et amassé 572 points en 825 parties en carrière.

En plus du Canadien, l'athlète de Pont-Rouge a aussi porté les couleurs des Bruins de Boston, des Capitals de Washington, des Sabres de Buffalo, des Sénateurs d'Ottawa et des Coyotes de Phoenix.

Il a connu sa meilleure campagne offensive en 1992-93 à Boston alors qu'il avait marqué 32 buts. Avec le Canadien, il a marqué 19 buts en 212 parties.

Juneau avait été un choix de quatrième ronde des Bruins en 1988.

Sad to hear, but not unexpected, of course. I sort of always had the feeling that Juneau was a guy who could still "get by" for a couple more years on savvy alone, if he landed on the right team in the right role. But it shows a bit of class to not be satisfied with such a peripheral existence.

I wonder what his plans are? I'm not sure if he's such a "hockey guy" that he'd go into coaching, although he obviously has the smarts for it.

Way to go Juneau!

Juneau ws surprisingly good for us in these playoffs, but its obvious his age is becoming a major issue. Im glad hes going, and not just because i dont want him anymore, but rather, because its just time now. Juneau has had an excellent career, and i wish him all the best in the future.

Thanks for bring everything you had Juneau!!!!

Go build a molecular, nuclear fusion type rocket now

The way Joe was playing in these play-offs and especially the last game it really looked like he didn't want to end his career. That last game was amazing to watch him play, I knew he didn't want it to end that way. Thanks Joe for 3 great years.

I think the reason why he played so well with all that heart in it is beacuse he knew it was going to be his last game so he wanted to go out with a bang.

Congrats Joey on a great career.

I think he'd make an excellent coach. He was one of the smartest, most positionally-sound forwards around. Hopefully the Habs can keep him in the organization.

I was always a fan of Juneau for being such a smart player and hard worker but I don't think his back could hold up for another season. Thanks Joe and good luck down the road.


If they get rid of Charron (which I don't think they will), I wonder if they would consider Joe to coach the PK?
