I am willing to bet everything I own that they chose Sal to be a captain because he makes for a good captain as opposed to Henrique, Larsson, or Zajac or whoever making for a good captain 3 years from now.

There is no guarantee that any of those 3 players are Devils 3 years from now. Obviously I would expect them to be here, but hockey is a business. Assuming you're a playoff contender and not rebuilding, you make decisions based on works now. If we're doing things only to benefit ourselves 3 years from now, this franchise has done a complete 180.
