Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla could be one player who has the future of his NHL career decided by the current lockout.

As he enters the final year of his five-year, $35 million contract that started in the 2008-09 season, Iginla's future remains a mystery.

Will he re-sign with the Flames, retire with the team and display a level of loyalty seldom seen in today's game? Or will he request a trade to a Stanley Cup contender in pursuit of the championship that has eluded him thus far in his Hall of Fame worthy career?

If he is ultimately traded, what can the Flames expect in return? That will depend on which teams are willing to give up some key parts of their future to acquire him, but in a shortened season, there could a larger amount of teams willing to make a bold move.

A package including a first round pick, and a choice of a top prospect or an established NHL player should be enough to acquire Iginla.

Let's look at the top five candidates to land Iginla before the 2013 trade deadline.
