I think that a player who has difficulties fulfilling his role on the ice shouldn't be named captain.

Jason Smith didn't produce many points, but that wasn't his role.
Horcoff didn't produce many points, and that was his role - like it or not.

If a player doesn't fulfill his role, it causes distractions, and a captain shouldn't have those. I highly doubt Taylor Hall goes into a scoring funk, while the jury is still out on Gagner.
