And I said it before I'll say it again: Talbot will be captain before Hartnell ever is.
I don't really think that Hartnell is captain material either, but Pronger has done a few things in his career that isn't very captain-ish. Iiirc he was known for having a fun time back when he was breaking into the league with Hartford, and then he had a few run-ins with Mike Keenan in St. Louis.

There are also those times when he's stomped on an opponent's leg or slipped and accidentally landed his elbow on someones nose, those were clear one-game suspensions... put his team down a man for sure.

Today, Pronger is probably a great leader, and he has that enormous will to win. He'll go through almost anything to make sure that the team wins in the end. Maybe Hartnell will prove to be a different person in his thirties than he was in his twenties as well.
