You need a lot of leaders, but a hockey team needs a voice, not only in the community, but more importantly between the coaching staff and the players. There are always ups and downs in a season; the captain is the guy players look to in those situations.
As a kid, you dream of winning the Stanley Cup. As you get older, you understand the importance of winning the Olympics.
