Hall plays with an intense emotion, he's an emotional player. I LOVE that about him. I don't want to curb that emotion in any way by sticking a "C" on his chest. He plays with an edge and in my mind for him to be the captain he would have to back off that edge a step.
You just described Hall as a guy similar to the guy with the leadership award named after him, Mark Messier.
