Crosby because if you play with him on the same line, you're going to get paid in the off season

Toews - complete package
Crosby - the best talent of list, but Toews is more mature
Alfredsson - been doing it for years
Callahan - guy who will do it all to win
Doan - another veteran guy, but not a whole lot of postseason success to show

Also: Chara, Zetterberg, Lecavalier, Ladd, Staal, Weber....

Define "best captain".

And then try to explain how Crosby is not the best, given he's the consensus best player in the world.

Is it who is the better player of these captains or who is better at being the captain?

I'd bet the family farm that not a single person voting in this poll knows anything about what happens in the dressing room, let alone how the captain influences the team.

To me won't comment on the other Captains, but as a sens fan, Alfie is the perfect captain.

Just listening to how he's been with players like Karlsson and the rookies, and then how MacLean just raves about how much of a leader/help Alfie is behind the scenes (aka he wouldn't be voted for Jack Adams if it wasn't for him). I think Alfie is an amazing captain. He also, as a player, is incredibly consistent.

That said, what defines a "great" captain? Is it best player who IS a captain? Or best leader for a team?

Really not all that easy to define what you mean by best captain. So depends on the interpretation of what you mean what I would actually pick.

Going with Callahan. Watch the Rangers, he works harder than any player I've seen.

I'd name Toews my team captain. Doan being a close second.

There might be a few people who have seen some stuff, but for the most part, yeah.

And being the captain is overrated anyway, players lead regardless of a big letter on their sweater.

Has to be Doan. Coyotes situation is a mess and he chose to stay with his team through all the chaos and even re-signed when he was a free agent.

How would we know?

I chose Alfie because he's old, and probably wise and ****.

Alfredsson has 5x as many votes as Doan??? Must be awesome having Ontario fans.
Toews has 4x as many votes as Crosby??? What have you done for me lately ...

None of us are informed voters, but regardless of criteria, results here ain't making sense ...
