From seventieslord's own profile:
Golonka didn't play very well in the 1969 World Championships (his last tournament); his meniscus injury was still bothering him. The team didn't win a medal, even though they beat the Soviets 2-0 and 4-3. Still, those two victories in such difficult times for his country warmed Golonka's heart more than a Gold medal would have.
According the the profile, Golonka retired as a player in 1975, though his last relevant season was in 1968-69.

So by your definition, he had 6 "bad" seasons to end his career. Personally, I don't think it's any more relevant than what Campbell did before the lockout, but there it is.
