Just because there are other worthy candidates, doesn't mean he wasn't worthy of it either. It's all about leadership and obviously his leadership skills stuck out far more than his other teammates. Who cares that he's young (see Crosby, Lecavalier, etc). He obviously deserved it.

And I'm not saying Zach doesn't deserve to be Captain some day, but he's on a veteran filled team and until they're gone, he probably won't even wear an "A".
i never said parise over richards, i just said parise has leadership qualities and it is ridiculous to compare richards, as a leader, to messier right now
