Build this man a new museum


WearingComb1050

“New Jersey Museum of Ice Hockey, dedicated to Douglas Hamilton”


NervousBreakdown

Newark Museum of Science and Trucking


IrateBarnacle

The Esplanade!


azgofk

Ralph’s the only one who can handle the Esplanade?


polyyyyyy

Devils actually have the Grammy museum built on to the stadium lol


Devilishdozer

That was the selling point for him signing


The_Reddit_Browser

With his new contract he could buy one


atoms12123

Thoughts 17 seconds in: We're winning the Cup.


northernpace

17 seconds used to be a cherished time in Hawks lore, not so much anymore.

… good one I’m not crying there’s just dust in my eye

I don't remember seeing this before, and this is my new favorite hockey thing.


Quell-Ebreo

Lmao that’s amazing


PinsNneedles

Our fans gave Dougie so much shit (when Slavin was out it was kinda deserved)- but man was I sad to see him go. Take care of our boy; he’s a beast. <3


thirdeyedesign

You're boy? Our boy! Also good riddance.


AlbertaNorth1

You are boy?


PinsNneedles

You are boy? lol


thirdeyedesign

Stupid uh voice to text?


PinsNneedles

I’ll allow it.


JD260

We stand here amidst my achievement, not yours!


The_Reddit_Browser

Make us proud you big red headed D man…. 🥲


notleonardodicaprio

I know we couldn’t afford him but I’m gonna miss him so much


JayMerlyn

Hot take: if he doesn't get injured in 2019, we re-sign him. Maybe (hopefully) not at that cap hit, but he stays a Hurricane.


rainman3135

not by signign 3rd line centre rfa to 6.1 millions offer sheet you couldn't


notleonardodicaprio

damn move on


AMeaninglessPassage

There is a fine strat behind it. You overpay for one year and extend him for less on a medium size term.


toastyghostie

I miss him so much but I hope he does well. Enjoy the shirtless interviews, New Jersey


AMeaninglessPassage

Will do


reecewagner

> big red headed D man Is there a joke here or are you just that strictly observational


[deleted]

Not a fanbase joke at least


yousayh3llo

On track for a 1,000 goal season


migsahoy

whichwitch9

THE MATH CHECKS OUT


thirdeyedesign

I got him at around 5000 goals for the season. Round (17) = 1 goal every 20 seconds x 3 = 3 goals per minute x 20 minutes per game x 82 games = 4920 Course they'll want to play him more, but with shooting fatigue and other teams head hunting him I expect the games missed vs extra play time it will average out.


Gruffleson

I heard his stats fell drastically already in the first game. He peaked young.


yousayh3llo

Good thing he signed that $100 million contract in 0:18


LocalFamous

Not a bad way to win over the entire fanbase, not that he really had to convince anyone given his skill


ahr3410

Contract police in shambles


Prideofmexico

So weird to see people worry so much about someone else’s money


ahr3410

Tbf it's about the cap space but Dougie is an amazing player and getting him for the rest of his prime is worth it even if there's a couple down years at the end


Prideofmexico

I’m definitely a fan of the laugh now cry later approach


Audi_R8_

If you don’t care about money then I’m sure you’d be ecstatic to have Sergei Bobrovsky and Matt Duchene on your team


Prideofmexico

You got me there


Ever_Raiden

I want to kiss this man


whichwitch9

I mean, have you seen the man? I didn't need the goal for that, but it doesn't hurt


IncidentalIncidence

Just wait till he does his first shirtless interview for y'all, you'll want to do more than that


zackattack789

He already did one in preseason and 😍😍


AshaGray

[I don't blame you](https://64.media.tumblr.com/50e174a041897155301a48b1b5948486/31f3d3cada30a5f4-53/s500x750/8bf8482897a32e064f051ccf262066bb5ecde54d.gifv).


MountainBean3479

So uh is he single? Asking for a friend ofc


IncidentalIncidence

Dougie Hamilton is the perfect Renaissance Man. The living embodiment of the ethos that "man can do all things if he will." Every inch of his body has been sculpted a masterwork. His proud chest glistens like an oiled gladiator in days of old. Do not be fooled, for he is no simple brute. His mind sharpened as a razor through the same zeal that gifted us his uncountable abs. Where lesser men boorishly flock to the font of decadence; Dougie opts to imbibe the world's cultures from our most venerated institutions. His spirit is indomitable. What motivates a man to eagerly step into the garden and vault of his betrayers? To withstand the jeers of fools who rejected him as their savior. No, not revenge - for he does not need to beg for their respect. Dougie seeks only to illuminate what awaits those who follow the path to a perfect body, mind, and soul. He does not seek our worship or devotion, though he certainly would be deserving of it. He simply recognizes that the better man is one who betters his fellow man.


animatedhockeyfan

No seriously who wrote this


wolfpackrider

Dude come to any canes post game thread and you will see some tasty copy pasta every time.


Nodor10

That sounds like an invitation if I’ve ever heard one


asom48

Cant ask for a better start! Let’s go baby


NJDevil802

False. 16 seconds would have been better.


asom48

TRUE


Puzzleheaded_Dish_85

This mofo is a Norris-caliber offensive D, but he’s an introverted, museum-visiting analytics darling so people hate him lol


BlackDS

Does anyone actually hate him for that?


pumaturtle

Yes


dontyoutellmetosmile

Yeah I hate his fuckin guts. Fuckin nerd, like Tom Poti ^^/s


Thehawkman2

RCEPS BICEPS TRICEPS HARD


FriedCammalleri23

GREEK UNDERGROUND GAY PORN HARD


DelitasChild

That’s one way to convince people you’re worth the price tag


Flamethrower753

I think this would be a good time to say that Dougie is making less than Seth Jones


northernpace

And didn't cost ya 2 firsts and a decent defensive prospect either. Jarmo bends Bowman over, at will.


AshaGray

You could report Jarmo to the police, but Stan hates reporting crimes.


Prideofmexico

Oh fuck


Skylightt

Boqvist is much better than a decent defensive prospect


simplycycling

For a second, I thought you were talking about Jesper. It was a real head scratches until I realized you meant his brother.


tristanje

Jarmo is truly the James Bond villain of the NHL. In Jarmo we trust


pumaturtle

Ernst Jarmo Blofeld


Aiomon

Jones had a corsi of like 19 in his first game lmao


YouthfulMartyBrodeur

And Dougie with the casual 75% CF tonight


duckinfum

I like hockey again.


danowar29

He's a dark horse to win the Norris since he'll get an insane amount of 5v5/pp time


Prideofmexico

I just can’t imagine him ever being a dark horse for the Norris since he’s always on the radar for it


WashYourDickBro

> he'll get an insane amount of 5v5/pp time *nice.*


IOnlyLikeColdDrinks

Doug Hamilton!! Home of the Doug Dimmadome!! What a nice start for the season :)


RiseAbove87

I see you also refuse to say "Dougie" lol. This is the way.


QuiGonJinnNJuice

So happy for Dougie and love to see him light up and see success right off the get go. Been really embarassing to see the shade thrown his way or some of the snark from team media on the way out. Dougie rules, he was great for the Canes, and I hope he can continue to show how great he is


Skylightt

Douglas fucking rules Edit: Fastest goal to ever start a Devils season. Dougie making history right off the bat


Paladoc

Devils Legend.


GhostSht

Anyone who makes a comparison joke about Hamilton’s shot and the Broadway musical is a nerd


AshaGray

There's a million puns we haven't made. But just you wait...


Noir24

You just had to bring up Broadway didn't you? :( RIP


itoadaso1

Decent start I guess.


PigFarmer1

I hate that guy but I would love him if he played for us. 🤣


Skylightt

I don't get how anyone can hate Dougie.


PigFarmer1

The guy has feasted on us.


Sphiffi

He's had a few borderline dirty plays. Two years ago Caps fans wanted his head.


nick_drake

Weren't they pretty mild in the grand scheme of things? I never hear anyone talk about how he's dirty. If anything, it's about how he doesn't lay the body enough.


Paladoc

I mean, Caps, Wilson..


Sphiffi

I'm pretty sure it was just [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSRu0-2W4MQ)


nick_drake

Oh yeah now I remember


aygc271

I love their commentator, so jealous.


Kraze_F35

norris szn


ph1008

assisted by Graves too 😮‍💨


CGeb

Zacha and Bratt. They credited Graves for some reason


ph1008

damn, would’ve been cool if it was lol


Nodor10

He got his on the OT goal


NJDevil802

I think that'll be fixed. Zacha got the primary


OrchidCareful

I have a lot of money on Zacha over 0.5 points So yeah I’ve had my fingers crossed for about a half hour


devonondrugs

How much did you put down on that obscure bet lol


OrchidCareful

2k idk the odds seemed good


TheRobberBar0n

2k on Zacha to get a point, gets it in 17 seconds.


OrchidCareful

sometimes these things work out ok


tronguro

What were the odds like +300?


OrchidCareful

-110


tronguro

Wow I know nothing about hockey prop bets apparently haha


ashtarprime

That seemed like good odds to you?


OrchidCareful

Yeah I had done some numbers and decided to get as much money as I could on it. Lucky it worked out


ashtarprime

Wow, I would never have thought that was a smart play, which is probably why I don't do those types of bets and you do :). And hell yeah that it worked out for you!


Lateralus24

That pass by Zacha was really good. Bratt with a great play too to start the sequence


jhdevils10

Money well spent... atleast someone wants to put the puck in net for us


Zajac19

He is the chosen one


badscene518

DOUGIE H


Devils29

Bratt getting no love and this goal is 100% his effort


Franzblau

I thought he’d get the secondary assist, but did he not touch the puck?


Cough_Syrup55

Return of the Dought


Snoopy-Town

Lifetime free tix to museums in the NYC/Jersey area then for Dougie?


AshaGray

He's definitely treating himself to a visit to see the Met's [baseball card](https://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/listings/2021/burdick-collection-baseball-cards) exhibition tomorrow 😎


spierce64006

Runaway Norris winner hopefully.


SRSgoblin

Is this what doing the Dougie means?


[deleted]

Guy calling the plays sounds like the crazy taxi


HardTimesOurTimes

Guys, I think Zacha is actually good


falco-holic

17 was Brind’Amour’s jersey number. Clearly this is a shot at Dundon

Daddie Hamilton


Coast_2_Coast

Imagine being a grown man named Dougie


DMCSnake

Look at that man. If he wants to be called Dougie, we will call him Dougie. If he wants to be called Daddy, a third of this state will call him Daddy.
