It will be a difficult decision for general managers Bryan Murray of the Ottawa Senators and Jay Feaster of the Calgary Flames.
Daniel Alfredsson and Jarome Iginla have been the face of their respective franchises for years. Both will be free agents at the end of the season.
The Senators are playing hard every night and are still in playoff contention despite suffering a slew of serious injuries. The Flames are quite inconsistent, but they are tied for 14th in the Western Conference.
Murray and Feaster are going to get calls about the availability of Alfredsson and Iginla.
There are several other players who may be considered rentals as the trade deadline approaches because they will soon become free agents.
