Not to pick on you - LOL - but you can't line those six forwards up together on an international ice surface - they'd get eaten alive. In terms of skating ability:

Heatley - poor
Perry - mediocre to poor
Getzlaf - mediocre (for a center)
Benn - decent @ wing, mediocre @ center
Eberle - average
Giroux - average

Heatley should be nowhere near this team. Same for Thornton. The other five may very make it (Giroux is a lock, Eberle is a near-lock, Perry and Getzlaf are 50-50, and Benn is a bit of a longshot), but if they do they'll need to be lined-up with faster skaters. Ironically, the guy you gave the least consideration to, Marleau, is probably the one best positioned to be an asset on the 2014 with his speed and special teams ability.
