But we've got a LOT of young guys on thsi team now and I just dont think his quiet demeanor is all they should be exposed to.

Give a guy like Prospal the C and watch him pump guys up or get on them if they do bad (not in a Torts fiery coach kind of way but as a player). As I said, this is complete speculation, but I'm really sick of seeing this team emulate Dru's attitude, but not his "work ethic".
Fair enough, but don't forget that Prospal is wearing an "A" as well. So nothing is stopping him from doing the things you'd want him to do as the captain.
