Actually from what I have seen of Spezza, I think he wouldn't be a very good captain. Guys like Alfie and Neil seem to really step up when the team needs a momentum shift, they are the heart and soul of this team. Spezza still has to prove that he can be the guy to carry this team. Now that doesn't mean that he isn't a highly skilled valuable asset to the team, all it means is that he isn't the guy to lead this team to a cup. At least that is my opinion based on his play.
Career Playoff Points per Game (Active Players)

1. Sidney Crosby 1.324
2. Evgeni Malkin 1.191
3. Alex Ovechkin 1.157
4. Claude Giroux 1.100
5. Martin St. Louis 1.079
6. Jaromir Jagr 1.050
7. Patrick Kane 1.020
8. Danny Briere 1.009
9. Jason Spezza 0.962

Spezza sure doesn't step up his game when it matters.
