Why Henrik?

Why is Henrik Sedin the captain of the Canucks? This is a genuine question. There is no doubt in my mind that the Sedins are probably the best duo in the NHL and Henrik is for sure a Top 10 or 5 player in the NHL, but my question is why is he the captain? I only watch the Canucks in the playoffs or when the Leafs play them and I see more leadership from guys like Kesler or Bieska. So I was curious as to why he was handed the captaincy, and your take on it? Secondly, I noticed how your fanbase was outraged by the Marchand hit (I also thought it was uncalled for and dirty, especially since it was on a guy like Salo), but I did not see a lot of fans complaining about the lack of grit and aggressiveness the Canucks show in defending their star players. To be honest, it feels horrible when ****heads like Lucic and Marchand get their way with the Sedins. From my own experience, Mats would either defend himself by not necessarily fighting but throwing a crosscheck, slash or some facewashing. Otherwise our Tuckers, Domis would step in. I remember when Mats got leveled by Exelby, even Kaberle tried to get a piece of him. Where is the unity on this Canuck team? Again I'm not trying to be offensive, these are questions out of curiosity. Thanks
