Alfredsson will always be the greatest captain Ottawa ever had, the same can't be said for Koivu.
If Alfredsson had to compete against the likes of Bob Gainey, Yvan Cournoyer, Maurice Richard, Doug Harvey or Jean Beliveau, he wouldn't be viewed as the best captain in his franchise history.
I also wouldn't hope Alfredsson will be or has been the best Ottawa captain ever. Unless you don't mind staying without a cup for the rest of your history of course.
