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.
Let's see then...the younger players are better than the "ancient ones", so...

Chris Chelios over Rocket Richard.
Teemu Selanne over Jean Beliveau.
Jaromir Jagr over Bobby Hull.
Nick Lidstrom over Doug Harvey.

Not a chance.

With this thinking, I guess A-Rod is better than Babe Ruth and Lou Gerhig, too.
