Is there famous names? It's common to think that the bigger guy has the advantage, but it isn't always true.

Steve Mckenna was huge, but a terrible fighter. Worst balance ever.

real goons, of course, or maybe wannabe-goons.

What is the premise? Fighters that did not win many fights? Or big guys that occaisonally got into fights but avoided them and always lost?

If it is the second I'll say Hal Gill.

If you're looking for large guys who were 'enforcers' but were terrible at it, this thread begins and ends with Steve McKenna.

Norman Baron. Some goon the Habs brought up in the 80s. Former weightlifter and bodybuilder. Couldn't fight, could barely stand on his skates, I'm not even sure he knew which end of the stick to hold.

Terry Harper. Don't think he ever won a fight but he sure got into a lot of 'em.

Best example is Hall Gill. That guy is a major pansy. Watch his fights on youtube. It's disgusting... and I have to watch him 82 times this year!

Keith Magnuson was a terrible fighter, but he dropped the gloves often because he was the kind of guy who always defended his teammates. Similar to Adam Foote, Magnuson was a tough, rugged defensive blueliner that was willing to take one for the team (repeatedly).
