good points Trots...I do believe, however, that a silent leader on the ice isn't always that effective. You need to be able to say the right things, provide the right guidance and real game experience to be effective. You need to play hard (not always great, but do the right things at the rigtht times) in order for the players on your team to give a hoot about what the captain says. As well, past experience helps and players fearing the captain doesn't always hurt (sounds weird, but if the 'leader' yells at a team and I'm the one bringing up the rear and holding the team back, I ain't going to feel so great so I'm going to do my best to avoid that type of humiliation).
