I still have to disagree. The better captains of the league were either;
A) People who would lead by example and could carry the team on their back (ex: Yzerman. I don't feel as though Koivu does every night).
B) People who could get the team roling and that would demand the best in everyone. Not only that but they could push themselves to the next level and take over a game single handedly (ex: Messier)
I think Koivu is an alright captain, but imo a guy like Souray or Rivet is more suited for the C.
