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.
Up until this point, the players you mentioned instead of Spezza haven't lead us to a Stanley Cup either. You also don't need to win the Cup to be a good captain as Alfie has shown throughout his career.
