Grabovski has heart, but as an offensive forward, he cannot carry the team on his shoulders when it matters -- this is what many Leafs fans expect the captain of the Maple Leafs team to do. Phaneuf may not be the ideal captain, but that's more out of necessity -- we don't have many to choose from considering where this team is at the moment. In comparison, let's look at the Rangers: Callahan is the captain, but Richards, Nash and Girardi are also captain material.
