It would be a joke around the league. Prust is great but still not an impact player. He leads by actions that are sometimes dumb and he says dumb things.

These all HELP the team in some way, YES. But these are not things captains do. Those are things agitators do, like Steve Ott. We'd laugh at BUF if he was their captain.

Prust is a guy that you appreciate and you want SOME element of their game in all your players. But he's not exactly a model player like Plekanec or Markov who are consummate professionals and command respect instantly.

Also, the captain has to also be locked in a for a few years. I'd be uncomfortable granting a 4th liner that type of invincibility.
