Oh and don't be fooled by Bernie's career high PPG and GPG averages as it was both from the same year when he was playing alongside Gretzky. Also Nicholls has had more then half his gpg average superior to 0.50 when he either played like half a season or when he played with Gretzky. To conclude, in my opinion, both men were great players, both were about the same when it came to points but goal scoring wise even a 2 year old would realise that they werent even in the same league! Goulet could outscore Nicholls anyday anytime. However, even though Nicholls wasnt as great a player as Goulet, that doesnt mean he shouldnt nor does it mean he wont be inducted in the hockey hall of fame.

Now personally, I would say Goulet was better as I was a habs fan and there was nothing wilder then the civil war between the Canadiens and the Nordique and after Stazny, Goulet was the most threathening player in his team in the 80-s. Also as some others mentioned Goulet participated in Canada cups unlike Bernie.
