Why would the solution be to give it to someone who, to you, makes sense because he's the best of the rest, but not necessarily actually good?

The only players on the team with the potential to be decent captains are Backstrom and Alzner (who isn't ready). Really they need someone from the outside.
backstrom? hes a bigger let down than ovechkin
