I don't think that Gionta is anything much as captain, but the importance of it is a bit overrated. The leadership group is solid enough, i.e. Gionta, Gorges, Cole, Markov, etc. And previously Gill. Oh, and regarding Markov, he was offered the captaincy but turned it down prior to Gionta.

It is stronger on the whole than it was in say 2009...where Koivu was of course a great captain, but there wasn't much of a leadership group- Rivet had been dealt, sure there was Markov but he seemed less vocal, Komisarek was miscast in this role, Kovalev?! Higgins?!...not really leaders. Gorges was still a bit young.
