Lets say I will use "noindex" on my blogs category pages

Each post has breadcrumb navigation like: Home > Category Name > Post Name If category has no index, I should add a rel="nofollow" to the link towards the category. I mean there is no need to parse link juices for a cateogry which will not be indexed. This way, the posts from my category will pass link juices only to my index page. Right?

What do you think?

Even if you use nofollow PageRank is still "lost" to those links even if those pages don't actually get it . So you won't be accomplishing anything by doing this.

What If I use javascript to make the link? Than the html will just feature a html text and not an actual link... the link would be loaded with javascript and rel nofloow –  webmasters Sep 15 '11 at 16:01
    
If the link is created with JavaScript it will not be subject to nofollow and it will not be found by the search engines (if it is done correctly). –  John Conde Sep 15 '11 at 19:08
