Perron is a very good complimentary player to that core who can skate, hit and score.

If that top six is healthy, I am not basing it on potential.
I think you are undervaluing the defenisve ability of other team's top six. Like Detroit who has perrenial Selke candidate Pavel Datsyuk. Even with an injury Detroit has better top six centers as they have Zetterberg capable of playing the middle. Frazen is basically a 30 goal scorer the last 3 seasons. All in all Detroit's top six is better until proven otherwise.

All in all I think you have overvauled the Oilers in each category by 4-5 slots.
