That's my thinking anyway - let him just focus on playing hockey instead of putting the responsibility for leading the time on/off the ice, being the "face" of the team, handling the inevitable media scrutinty, and all the other trappings of being the captain. Not to say that he won't be asked to shoulder some of this load anyway, but personally I'm of the view that your captain doesn't need to be your best player (and vice versa).
