A team captain has nothing to do with how a player deals with the external media and everything to do with how he's perceived by his teammates in the locker room. By all accounts (whatever that's worth) PK is probably liked/tolerated in the room, but isn't the guy other players would go to for wisdom and leadership. Sure, it could change. As you say, he might get an "A" eventually, but I see him on the panel of HNIC before I see him ever getting a "C".
