It was an unbelievable night.  #81 raised to the rafters, the Rush winning big over the Roughnecks and Vimy students celebrating with Jimmy Quinlan as his jersey is retired.  I know personally through Jimmy’s work with my three kids that he is a relentless coach that demands perfection.  His intensity and drive can feel like a battering ram coming at you, but he has an incredible desire to make you a better player.  I appreciate the efforts he has made with my kids and I feel that the students at Vimy also appreciate his work.  It was not more evident than Friday night when the Vimy students were able to get on the floor as his jersey went up at Rexall Place.  It may be the end of Jimmy’s playing career with the Rush, but we know his work at Vimy will continue for years to come.
