Really its impossible to know. For fans to respond to a leadership question with things like "its not even close" is idiotic unless you are talking someone like Avery. We as fans have ZERO clue what goes on in the lockerroom.

AINEC.

Saku was a great leader. Alfie is my captain. All that comes to mind when we mention these guys is "class".

Well that's not really fair to Saku because he was captaining the most prestigious hockey club in the world, while Alfie is the captain of a team that has zero history before him

Alfie wouldn't have been the face of the franchise in Montreal

If he was playing in his prime? Yeah, he would have been the face of the franchise during his time.

So any captain thats on a non-original-six team is a bad captain.

Ottawa has a ton of history, by the way.

He's just saying it's much harder for Koivu to be remembered when there's been a hundred of greats before him. Like it or not, if Alfredsson had captained Montreal, he wouldn't be as great. Relatively speaking of course.

This would be pretty close of Koivu had the same skills as Alfie. Alfie being better allowed him to make a bigger impact more easily.

I think without all the injuries Koivu would have been alot closer to Alfie.
