My captain is one of the worst players on the team but everyone respects him. He manages all the team finances and communication with the league, puts together the roster, and sets the tone in terms of good attitude in the locker room and on the bench.
He doesn't do much in terms of coaching or putting together lines, other than generally telling us the same cliches that every coach will do (go to the net, stick on the ice, one man deep, etc).
Our assistants (one forward, one defense) will come up with lines and pairings and again set an example in terms of hard work, good attitude, etc.
Our team is fairly low level though and it is competitive but still recreational hockey, so mostly people are left to get their coaching and what not on their own time.
