That makes no sense. Just because he's a "only a 3rd liner now (which could be debated, but I actually agree with you) doesn't decrease his leadership or how the other players see him.
It's not about being a high scoring player, it's about showing the right work ethic, showing a good example to younger players and once in a while being able to tell it like it is in the room.
I think he's a fine captain. Not a player I really like, personally, but until he's traded or retires there's no point in changing his captaincy. Would probably only lead to room problems...
