In many ways 40k has many top trump situations. Terminators are good at CC, except when they face genestealers. Deamon princes are great in CC, except where they face genestealers. etc

In your opinion what are the best and what should be the best - per points in; CC, toughness, firepower, speed etc

I'll start with what I see:

Best in CC per points spent
1. Genestealer
2. Harlequin (probably - I haven't seen their rules) / old deamonettes
3. Carnifex / Hive Tyrant / C'tan
4. Dreadnaught
5. Banshees

Genestealer in a landslide

There are plenty of ways to limit the power of a CC attack that apply to any unit, not just genestealers.

1. Grenades.
2. Cover.
3. Charge them first.

As for your question, I think you need to break it down between MC/IC and units. My list, but I can't decide on the exact order...

MC/IC

C'tan
Daemon Prince/Greater Daemon
Bloody Handed God
Hive Tyrant

Units

Khorne Berzerkers - Old Codex :-(
Blood Angel death company
Wraiths - They should be much better than they are
Pariah
Harlequin
Genestealers
Ork Kommandos
