I'd agree that if the Oilers want to get tougher they need to dump the goon mentality and get players that can hit/block and actually score and generally be useful players and not liabilities at even strength.

They need size and skill throughout the lineup and not a "better" or different goon in the 14 spot.

How many of the top teams have true goons and how many used them in the playoffs?

More size and toughness in the lineup is needed but Hordi isn't the answer.
