He's not a leader. He's like that rich kid on the Bantam team who got there because his dad knows people and demands ice time and to be able to play how he wants. Make Backstrom or Laich the captain.
If Ovechkin adapted his game to a defensive and offensive style (two way player), he would still be great. Your scenario is very similar to a player named Yzerman who had to adapt a new stye to win Championships, instead of being an offensive juggernaut.
