I think the OP asked the question more about style than to suggest that these players will or are as good.
Stylewise I would say that the two most obvious comparisons are
Gretzky ---- RNH
Schultz ---- Coffey
After that it gets a little tougher.
Hall ---- Messier
is not quite correct, though Hall may play the role of the emotional leader. Messier was much meaner and less wreckless than Hall. In a way I think that
Hall --- Anderson
might make as much sense.
I don't think there is a good match for Eberle on that 80's team.
As far as his shot goes you might compare Yakupov with Kurri, but that is about the only real similarity in their games outside of both being great skaters.
I don't actually see the Klefbom -- Lowe comparison myself. Lowe was not as good a skater but he was straight up nasty, something that I don't yet see in Klefbom.
