Alfredsson will always be the greatest captain Ottawa ever had, the same can't be said for Koivu.
Look at what the loss of Koivu did to Montreal in 2006. They were up 2-0 in the series on the Hurricanes, after Koivu got injured they lost 4 straight.

Dumb comparison, if Alfredsson had been the captain of Montreal, he would not be the greatest captain in our history.
