He's too meek to be a leader, IMO.
If we were talking about him as a potential captain, then this leadership concern might have some validity. He is quiet and low-key (which I think you have confused with being meek), probably to a point where he'd have a hard time running a room. But we are talking about being the first-line center. And he doesn't need the leadership ability of an NHL captain to be that. He just needs to have the skill (which I don't think he quite has) and the work ethic (which he does have).
