Alfredsson will always be the greatest captain Ottawa ever had, the same can't be said for Koivu.
Saku captained his team to 2 upsets vs the heavily favoured Boston Bruins, one with a 3-1 series come back. While Alfie kept leading his team (some of the most talent teams in the NHL), to playoff defeats vs the Leafs again, again, and again.
