No legacy picks anymore. This was Gretzky gaff in 2006. If he's not on the top of his game in Dec 2013 (when teams are named) then leave him off. And the same goes for Getzlaf...
Agree wholeheartedly with the bolded; he's not a lock in my view, and needs to earn his spot on this roster, but I have confidence in him getting back to 40+ goal form this year and in that case I think it'll be hard to leave him off the team.
