But way to quiet, nice and calm for leading a NHL team if you ask me.

Well, we are free to have differential opinions. ;-)
Well to start, he is the highest scoring player for the leafs ever. Captained the team for 10 years. 25th all time in points and constantly playing on a bad to average team. His best winger must have been Alex Mogilny, he did never play with a Yashin, Heatley, Spezza, Hull, Yzerman, Fedorov, Shanahan, Zetteberg or Datsyuk. The leafs were just never good enough to win a cup and its not easy to accomplish anything on a bad team.

And quiet? He strikes me as a very outgoing person, more so than Lidstrom and Alfie. Joe Sakic is considered one of the best captains of all time and he was a pretty quiet and calm guy.
