Which players could one day contend for NHL games played title?

Earlier this week Jaromir Jagr passed a legend on the NHL’s all-time games played list. Jagr leapfrogged Gordie Howe to move into second place in total games played (regular season plus playoffs) behind only Mark Messier.

Jagr likely won’t pass Messier unless he returns for the 2018-19 campaign, or if the Flames go on a deep playoff run and Jagr barely misses another game but it got us thinking: what other active players are candidates to potentially one day move into the top five or even top three in the total games played category?
