Too bad it's a minority, and too bad the Habs management is too soft to think that way. I couldn't say no to a Ben Eager in Montreal, it's some good team toughness all season long without being a liability while on the ice. He simply is not an enforcer.
The point is that the way you have defined "toughness" is flawed. Its completely arbitrary and is based on your desire to prove your hypothesis. You have accepted certain players as tough, and rejected other players who are extremely similar as not tough, based on arbitrary criteria, and it looks an awful lot like that criteria is whether or not it proves your hypothesis.
