I would say:
C: 1980s/early 1990s, possibly followed by the late 1920s
RW: 1950s easily
LW: 1950s/60s or late 2000s (Ovechkin's prime with Kovalchuk, Heatley, Parise, etc)
D: late 80s/early 90s, followed by late 70s
G: late 90s, followed by late 50s/early 60s
Oh they had to overlap? Sorry my mistake. Your list is much better representation in that case.
