Frans is 29, plays both sides of the puck well, seems to fit in well with the team, gets plenty of ice time and is signed for the next three years (so there's hope for stability). Plus, he'd be the first Danish NHL captain, so, history!

Yea it looks like Crosby and Toews really struggled after they were named captain.
