Nicholls isnt even mentioned in the same breath as Goulet. To me it comes down to all of the all-star berths Goulet had. Nicholls never once had a first or second all star berth. He hit 150 points and then never came in the same universe as that before or after. He was good, but to me he reminds me of guys like Ciccarrelli, Andreychuk, Gilmour who will just get into the HOF by their point total and that's it. For Andreychuk its just pure longevity cause there's no way he's a Hall of Famer. Same with Nicholls. He never put the fear of God into anyone when he stepped on the ice. I'm sorry but he was never a top 10 or even top 20 player in the league at any time. Goulet for sure was.
