I would suggest your list is biased , and thats putting it politely.

Chara is nowhere near the best captain.

Iginla and Alfie are better captains than he is.

Do you think Chara is a better leader than Bergeron?

Yes, as the team effort was horrendous?

Seriously this poll is wrong. Either one do it the normal way around here, with rounds until all 30 captains are nailed down. Or one list specific virtues and vote on which captain has the most of that virtue.

Staal seems to be winning this atm, this poll could be considered round #1, make another one and exclude Staal etc.

Yes.

I personally think Patrice's leadership is overrated... by what do I know, he's been a long standing alternate captain and lead Boston out of the darkness that was the Thornton trade.

Like Jarome, Alfredsson and Backes in that order. Then probably Zetterberg.

Toews has said and done far too many brainless things in the last year to win this poll. Most recently in picking a fight with a much bigger guy for absolutely no reason, then getting his ass handed to him.

I think that's why Washington picked Ovechkin.

As you can see, it's working out great...

Close between Alffie and Iggy. Toews is up there, too.

I picked Iginla. He'll score, pass, fight, and generally do anything and he is a very respected player in the NHL.

I just look at what Lecavalier has done sense he has put the "C" on. He has completely changed his game to be more of an all around player and he does so much for the team in support for Stamkos and St. Louis.

I hope he can win a cup as Captain.

Uhmm, yeah, no, Crosby is the best leader/player/captain in the league beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Complete guess! Woo!

Worst captain in recent history: Nash or Luongo. That's all I know of captain quality.

I guess I should have stuck a somewhere in my post..

The point I'm trying to make is that threads like these are ridiculous, and there is no way to actually judge who the best captain is other than on-ice performance and pure conjecture.

I'll put my Bias homer answer aside and Agree that Toews is the best Captain in the NHL.
