Well this is where I will have to dissagree with you. While the man has some consistancy issues, I do not think he is a bad leader. From what I have seen in interviews and by his actions in big games, he is a decent leader. To claim he "has not the slightest bit of Leadership" is pretty rediculous considering he was the captain of his countries national team. I think him having the A is a good thing, especially when there are several key members on the team who speak Russian as their first language. Rivet might be a good leader to the english speakers (but Souray and Koivu are better), but I bet the Russians will follow Kovalev more willingly simply because he can actually motivate them because they understand what he is saying.
