See, that's just it, though. I don't think wearing the 'A' and getting to talk to the ref after penalties are called can turn you into a leader. Guys like Muller, Carbonneau, McPhee, Keane, and Gainey didn't have to take off their patches every other game so guys like Lebeau, Shutt, and Daigneault could get their turn. I think wearing it should be an honour and a privilege, like wearing the C is. I don't see why one should be treated with reverence while the other is tossed around every other game.
