Good captains are players who WORK HARD and WITH EMOTION. You don't have to be the best player, you simply need to show example by giving your 110%. Kelly Buchberger is a good example of that, he was respected by all players because his fearless (borderline stupid) attitude.
Generally I don't think good captains are player who hold out for more money, for example Kariya sat for several months demanding more money and that shows very poor example to the team, it tells others that your personal needs go before team's needs.
Hang on are you saying that Kariya didn't have a good work ethic?
