I think Dougie has a lot of gamebreaking ability, but I think he'll be reined in due to how Julien coaches. I thought a great example of him being a gamebreaker was in Canada's loss to Russia last year. They were down by 5 goals, so Canada went into desperation mode and sent Dougie out a lot more than usual, and really let him go all-out offensively. The result was him taking over the game and Canada nearly tying it up. Obviously it wasn't just Hamilton that got them back into it, but I think he was the main catalyst.
