Random Thoughts For Joey Juneau Thursday February 7, 2008

Before the flames game, Sportsnet had a remarkable piece on “Joey Juneau’s” amazing work teaching hockey to kids in Northern Quebec.

It is well known, that besides Gary Suter, Joe Juneau is my all-time favorite hockey player. So besides teaching hockey to youth of Northern Quebec here’s some other stats.

  • If it weren’t for Mr. 72 goals in his rookie season. With 102 points, the double JJ’s would have won the Calder Trophy hands down… Those sneaky Fins always get in the way!
  • The Bruins were amazing … until they traded him away to Washington.
  • The Capitals were amazing … until they let him walk away into Free agency.
  • He has an Engineering Degree in Aeronautics. (i.e dude’s a Rocket Scientist)
  • He’s played for the Caps, Sabres and the Sens. Three of my favorite teams of all time. How I never got a Sens Jersey with Juneau on it I will never know
  • He was almost as ugly as Ricci.
  • He was unreal in NHL 93.
  • He now looks like a woodland hermit.

... And to top it off he’s doing some very amazing acts of generosity for the Children of Northern Quebec.

Long live St. Juneau.
