Jared Coreau discusses Griffins’ playoff ouster, his future in post-game interview

The Grand Rapids Griffins have been eliminated from the Calder Cup playoffs early, and as a result, the team will hold its exit interviews on Wednesday.

Red Wings prospect and Grand Rapids Griffins goaltender Jared Coreau will find out a fair bit about his future come Wednesday, and as it was a pleasure to work with Coreau for the better part of eight years, I’m giving his post-game interview–an interview given after the rest of the players and coach Nelson had reflected upon the Griffins’ 5-1 loss to Manitoba–its own topic.

Coreau was thoughtful and insightful regarding the Griffins’ scrappy season, the reality that is the championship hangover, his experiences in Detroit and his future:

  1. No hate towards Coreau but he doesn’t have an NHL future. He really hasn’t even had a great AHL career if I’m being honest.

  2. It doesn’t seem to be a good show for Chevy either. :/

    I thought Svech did just fine while he was up here. So I don’t know.

    1. A week ago Kenny is talking up Svech like he is a Grade A prospect. Oh yeah we have Rasmussen and Svech and Cholowski and Hronek and Saarijarvi and Giovanni Smith (Kenny calls him Giovanni??). Sorry Kenny. Rasmussen, Hronek, and Cholowski appear on the path to be legit NHL’ers. The rest have huge question marks. Svech has gone backwards since the moment we drafted him. For the last year I’ve called him Jurco 2.0. That’s probably being kind. Jurco has earned a regular NHL paycheque. Svech will be in the KHL soon. This is why I’d love for Kenny to swindle whatever GM drafts his brother. Take a 2nd round pick and move on.
