Maybe they tried privately that and it didn't work so they decided he didn't have the teams best interest in mind. If that's the case then it would be easy to justify stripping him of the "C" publicily to help push him away. I mean that's a BIG slap in the face to a guy like Marleau and differnet then when Modano was stripped as he was on the verge of retiring anyways until he pulled a Farve. It was even a big deal when Conroy gave up his "C" to give to Iggy.
