I think the best defenseman, the best right winger and the best center of all time each has claim on being the best player of all time.

But in terms of team building....

Howe is the easiest to build around because he does it all;
Gretzky has the greatest team scoring boost potential (everyone around him scores more) as long as he has a scoring winger, physical second line center for match-ups and an enforcer to protect him;
Orr is the most important to having a competive advantage because of what he brings to the blueline is unparallelled and so important to a team's success (defense, offense, speed, smarts, puck possession time).
