Of course, Stastny's numbers went downhill, too, after he and Goulet went their separate ways, so you could also make that argument in the opposite direction.

MS's second point is probably the most convincing. Goulet was selected to two Canada Cup teams (as well as Rendez-vous 87) and performed well on them; Nicholls was never picked for a "best of the best" team like those.
