Those picking Chelios, Selanne, Lidstrom and Jagr....just stop. You are essentially picking Matt Hasselbeck or Joe Flacco over John Elway just because they are more recent.
I totally disagree with this thought. We're not talking about most legendary players, just flat out best. And Chelios, Selanne, Lidstrom and Jagr all exhibited certain attributes that make them just as likely to be 5th "best" as Bobby Hull or a few other older players.
Just because a player is ancient does not automatically make him better.
I think my vote would be for a goalie. Patrick Roy was the guy who came to mind for me.
